There is a story about the young donkey that got the unique opportunity to carry Jesus Christ on its back, during the Lord's triumphant entry into Jerusalem.
The donkey was overjoyed and proud during that journey because he thought that all the praises, 'Hosanas 'and excitement of the crowd were directed towards him.
The donkey could not sleep that night thinking of the grand reception he got.

Next day morning, the donkey went 'alone' through the same streets expecting
a similar royal reception.
But the children who waved palm leaves the day before made fun of the donkey .He was beaten up and dumped into a ditch. Lying there with broken legs, he
might have thought about the reason for this difference in reception.

"Without GOD, we are mere ZEROES
With GOD, we are real HEROES"
Let us work with Jesus. Then our mission will be a grand success. If we work without Jesus, proud of our own capabilities, with the intention of gaining fame, power or money, our works will fail and we will be left in a lamentable state like the idiotic donkey that marched alone and landed in a ditch.
