A Place Where Two ways Meet

Teresa Poucher

In Mark, chapter 11, we read of Christ’s triumphal entry. Jesus sent two of his disciples on a mission to get a colt. The donkey was young and had never been ridden.

Jesus told them, as soon as they entered the village, they would find this colt tied up. If anyone questioned them, they were to say the Lord needed him.

And they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door without in a place where two ways met; and they loose him.” (Mark 11:4)

  Sure enough, the two disciples went their way and found the colt in a place where two ways met.  I would have been a little nervous taking someone else’s animal, as theft was pretty serious in ancient times. Yet Jesus only needed to borrow it, so to speak, just like the tomb in which he was laid.

  I was much like this donkey. Just as it was tied up without the door and never ridden, so also was I bound in sin outside the entrance, wild and unruly.  I was also at a place where two ways met, at a fork in the road.

If someone were lost and came to a fork in the road in America, they would probably go right. In England, one would be prone to go left. Thank God we have GPS because I get lost easily. I went out of town before GPS and got lost. I came to a roundabout and rode it like a merry-go-round. Going right seems safe.

   In the Bible, the right hand represents power, and righteousness means living right.  So, when you get to a fork in the road or a place where two ways meet, go right.

My day starts with a cup of good coffee and a talk with Jesus. I started walking with Jesus when I was eighteen. That was In March 1979. I have fought many battles. No I haven’t won them all, but I have learned how to not only survive but thrive. Let me share with you...
