Stewardship: Matthew 21:3 If anyone says anything to you, you shall say, 'The Lord needs them,' and he will send them at once." Did Jesus really need the donkey? If the man had refused to give the donkey would the work of salvation have been derailed? Of course not. But what an honor for the man who owned this donkey and foal! Likewise with us – the Lord needs none of us, but what an honor for God to choose to use our generosity in the work of His Church.

Building Healthy Families: Husbands, listen up! Did you know that 90% of good communication is listening, not talking? When your wife is talking to you, stop what you are doing, turn toward her, and look at her face. Communicate the message that you are interested in and care about what she is saying. This is respectful, courteous, and is one way to build a great relationship! LFS

 April 13 – Palm Sunday, Sunday of the Passion – When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the crowd hailed Him as Savior and King because He raised Lazarus from the dead (John 12:13-18). When He left Jerusalem with thorns and a cross, the soldiers mocked Him as “King of the Jews” (Matthew 27:29). Neither group understood the humility of His servant kingship or His glory as the suffering servant. Praise God that His Spirit reveals this to us so that we might humbly walk as redeemed and life-affirming servants. Prayer: King Jesus, help me have and share Your attitude about life. Amen.
