Thinking about Zacchaeus: Monday

“I must stay at your house today.” (v 5)

My house is a comfortable place. I like it. Everything is where I need it to be. If others don’t know where things are, that’s not my problem. They don’t live there. It is my house, right? Why wouldn’t God want to meet us where we are comfortable?

It should not surprise us that Jesus did not meet Zacchaeus at Zacchaeus’ house. Instead, Jesus waited until he was up a tree. The tree was not Zacchaeus’ comfortable place, but it was a holy place.

Prayer:

Take a few minutes to walk around your home. Pause and recall the good things that you have experienced in certain spaces. Thank the Lord for those memories and the people in them.
