Matthew Henry comments on the laying of palm branches and clothing upon Jesus’ path, saying, “Those who take Christ for their King must lay their all under his feet.” This crowd, in the end, did not want Jesus to rule over them in the way He designed, hence their praises were hollow. Sometimes we act the same way, holding onto sin or not sacrificing for the kingdom even while praising Jesus with our mouths. What must you lay at our Lord’s feet this day?
