“I tell you,” He replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.” Luke 19:40

Think

Palm Sunday was a day of celebration in the city of Jerusalem. When Jesus rode in on the back of a donkey, the crowd shouted with joy and cheered for the coming Savior. But in every crowd, there will always be naysayers. There will always be those few (who end up sounding like everyone) who will jeer instead of cheer.

When the few (the Pharisees) began to jeer and tell Jesus to quiet His followers, He said something interesting. “If they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.” But stones aren’t made to cry out in praise for God. We are! Don’t let a rock take your role. Use your voice, your life to praise God for who He is and what He has done in your life!

Pray

Thank God for giving you the ability to “cry out” in praise of Him. Thank Him for all He has done in your life. And pray for the opportunities to point others to Him.

Act

Post this on your social media today. “I won’t let a ROCK take my ROLE!” Pray this sparks curiosity in your circle of influence so you have a chance to talk about what this phrase means!
