“Rejoice, O people of Zion! Shout in triumph, O people of Jerusalem! Look, your king is coming to you. He is righteous and victorious, yet he is humble, riding on a donkey— riding on a donkey’s colt.”
Zechariah 9:9 NLT.

The age of humility is gone. Maybe it never existed. 

I know ONE true leader that humbled himself before his people. He even gave his life for his people. 

Jesus demonstrated real leadership. 

Today our political leaders know NO humility and do not care about being righteous, victorious, and humble.  Can you picture ANY of our current leaders riding on the colt of a donkey? I know plenty ordinary people who are humble servants.  Why can't our leaders , lead with grace and mercy? 

I would vote for someone who is genuinely humble. I would vote for someone who puts others before campaigning or grabbing headlines. I would vote for a leader that would have compassion for the homeless, our nations veterans, the orphans, and the widows. Instead they are focused on helping special interest groups, courting big money, and being "politically correct". Our nation and world are heading down a dangerous path. BUT, remember who our REAL LEADER is. Remember the sacrifice and service he made for all of us. Remember the home he has prepared for us and the eternal life we are granted. PRAISE GOD! Jesus has saved us from all of the turmoil and selfishness of this world.

Dear Lord, Give us a spirit of humility. Give us a servant's heart. Give us compassion for our fellow man, our enemies and friends alike. We need your spirit. We need your love, mercy, and grace. Guide me in your path. Walk with me and direct my steps. Amen!
