Devotion for Weds in Lent 5

Luke 19

I just preached on the Zacchaeus story recently.  I never had and it was good to see Jesus at work in the life of such a now-former scoundrel.

I guess one of the things that has really settled in my mind while reading Luke this Lenten season is how much of a real challenge Jesus is.  There’s more here than we hear in any given sermon, on any given Sunday.  Jesus has room in the kingdom for Zacchaeus.

To put myself in that story, I find it difficult to see myself as Zacchaeus but much easier to see myself as one of those criticizing him, if I’m being honest.

Where do you see yourself in this story?
