Accord to legend, modern day donkeys today still bare the mark of the cross from their encounter with Jesus. The story goes, after Jesus rode into Jerusalem on the back of the donkey, that donkey became so attached to Him that he followed Him everywhere. When Jesus was led to Calvary, the donkey followed Him and refused to leave His side. The donkey was so overcome by grief, that he turned away from the cross. The shadow of the cross fell upon his back, and all of the donkeys today carry that cross with them. May we live our lives so that all who see us would see Him. May our lives forever be marked with His presence.
