Lent: Prepare for His arrival

The last week of Lent is a great time to assess our preparation for the King's arrival on Palm Sunday, not only in our individual hearts.

If our King comes to us so gently and humbly, how might we prepare for his return by following his example? Would we be prepared? With what stories would you regale him? With what songs and shouts would you praise him? What would you be proud to show him (or ashamed to show him)? Would you recognize him for who he is or, like the religious leaders, would you mistake him for someone else because his humility doesn't fit the paradigm of a leader?

How would you roll out the red carpet for the King?
