Thinking about Zacchaeus: Monday

“He was seeking to see who Jesus was…but he was small…” (v 2)

What obstacles get in your way? What keeps you from seeing Jesus? For Zacchaeus, it was his own body’s limitations; but his desire to see Jesus gave him the ingenuity to get to him somehow.

But it would have been an easier path for him if the crowd would have bridged the gap for him – shown a little interest in letting him see Jesus too. People have enough obstacles to faith in themselves. There’s no reason for us – the crowd – to make more.

Prayer:

Father, I want to be a bridge – not a block. Help me to remember that is not US and THEM, but rather YOU and US. We are all sinners who need to be redeemed by your grace.
