On Palm Sunday, Jesus's triumphal entry into Jerusalem was so well attended because many were welcoming a coming king... but in a political sense. They thought He'd be a military leader who'd fix their earthly problems.
This tendency still plagues us today. We have a choice: demand that God do for us what we think He should do, or let Him do it His way.
Is it better to have the king we want, or the King we need?
