Reaching "Zacchaeus"

today's reading.
Luke 19:1-10

the blog.
Have you ever assumed a particular person wouldn't be interested in hearing about Jesus based on who they were, how they were dressed, their actions or because of the people they hang out with? I know I've done that, and as a result I've missed out on opportunities that God has put in front of me to share Christ. 

Luke 19:1-10 tells us that Zacchaeus was the "chief tax collector and was rich." So he was someone the crowd considered a "sinner," a person they would have avoided. But not Jesus. He calls Zacchaeus down from the tree and then proceeds to invite himself over to Zacchaeus' house (pretty bold, don't you think?). Before the end of the day, Zacchaeus' life is changed forever. 

So what's your take away from Jesus' example here in Luke 19:1-10? Who do you know that might be a "Zacchaeus" waiting for someone (you) to tell them about Jesus? Tami
