Zacheus was a wee little man

This morning I read about Zacheus, the wee little man who climbed up in a syacmore tree, so that he could get a better glimpse of Jesus.  In this very brief story, we see that Zacheus was a tax collector & not popular with the general public (maybe like our IRS – smile).  Nevertheless, his interest in Jesus compelled him to do something that was out of the ordinary – maybe he was used to doing these kinds of things since he was a wee little man ,)

Whatever was his normal behavior, he caught Jesus’ attention and Jesus was happy to visit Zacheus’ house – the beginning of Zacheus’ transformation.  When we genuinely look for & accept Jesus for Who He really is, then our lives change.  Our relationship with Jesus is about living a transformational life more than being a religious follower of Jesus 🙂

One thought on “Zacheus was a wee little man

  1. I think……it is all about recognizing that everyone has a need – even the despised tax collector. As I recall he was a man of means and of course in our society and religion we mostly base first blush success on wealth, but……. every one still has a need. Jesus recognized that in him and said get your little rear down here and let’s see what we can fix (because he probably also had the pre-Napolean complex, too! haha) But his spirit man needed fixing – so Jesus fixed him up…..I think. Smiles
