KING FOR A DAY

Once upon a time, before television, there was radio. You know what radio is--television without pictures. Well, before television, one of the most popular daytime radio programs was called "Queen for a Day."

If I remember it correctly (and it was a long time ago!), each day four or five women from the studio audience would tell the host what they would like to have and do if they could be "Queen for a Day." And then, on the basis of applause, one woman was chosen, and insofar as they were able, the sponsors fulfilled her wildest desires. She was given a number of valuable prizes and for one day she reigned as "Queen."

That sounds like what happened to Jesus, doesn’t it? Jesus was crowned "King for a Day" on that first Palm Sunday.
