Luke 19: 5 When Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, hurry and come down; for I must stay at your house today.”
He doesn’t care what others think as he scrambles up the tree. He doesn’t listen to their rebukes about being a traitor and collaborator with Rome. He has to see Jesus. Zacchaeus knows that Jesus is the one person who can make his life right again.
What hope, what love, what desire to be made whole! May we seek Jesus with the ardent zeal of Zacchaeus, a lost, despised man who ran up a tree and climbed down as a beloved child of God.
