King of Kings

This is probably the most famous photo of the Thai king. His humility and kindness to an old woman lying prostrate before her king instantly endeared a nation. Thai people are fiercely loyal to him and he has reigned longer than Queen Elizabeth. What I love about this picture is that it is the perfect metaphor for God. As Americans, we view kings as despots to rebel against, but to Thai people and to me, a king is worthy of my respect, affection and uncompromising loyalty. And like this picture, the King of Kings humbled himself enough to touch us and raise our heads. That King is truly worthy of our worship. Have a great Sabbath!
