Matthew 21:1-17

Today’s Reading is Matthew 21:1-17.
I was in the nice position to be able to listen to a sermon of my wife preaching at my church. She made a very nice point:
Cheering for Jesus in good times is easy. But when the going gets rough we are pretty much like those people that were lining the streets with palm branches and their coats – we turn our back on Jesus:
– Most of his disciples ran away when he was arrested!
– Peter denied him three times!
– Peter, John and James fell asleep instead of being there for him in Gethsemane!
Sound familiar? We would never do that, right?
