There’s an awesome story in the book of Numbers when God decides to use a donkey to get his message across. For effect, let’s use the KJV:
And Balaam rose up in the morning, and saddled his ass, and went with the princes of Moab.
And God’s anger was kindled because he went: and the angel of the Lord stood in the way for an adversary against him. Now he was riding upon his ass, and his two servants were with him.
KJV is just fun, I should use it to teach far more often.
