The Jesus Tree–Day Twenty-Eight

Today’s reading was a classic–the story of Zacchaeus, found in Luke 19:1-10. I don’t think that there’s a child that isn’t familiar with this story, but it’s still a good one to read when presented with the opportunity. This is another passage that reminds us that Jesus came to seek the lost, as Zacchaeus was a sinner just like us. Not only that, but he was generally hated by his peers, because of his status as a rich tax collector. And yet, Zacchaeus came to faith, and made amends for the wrong he had done, and while others may have complained about Jesus’s acceptance of him, Jesus Himself rejoiced that another who was lost had been saved.
