Thinking about Zacchaeus: Wednesday

“They all grumbled…” (v 7)

Those outside of the house Jesus enters will always complain about those inside the house. We sometimes worry more about how we will be perceived by those outside than what really matters – what the Savior who has entered will think.

You cannot think of criticism as a negative, as an assault on you. Zacchaeus did not. His response was not to satisfy the critics with justifications. Instead, he responds with righteousness that silences them.

Prayer:

Thank the Lord for your critics. Pray that God would bless them through you.
