A Wee Little Man Was He

Luke 19:1-9

“Zacchaeus was a wee little man, a wee little man was he…”

I remember singing that song.  In fact, it may have been one of the first songs I ever learned as a child in church.

It speaks of Jesus specifically reaching out to a rich man who was “small in stature,” and apparently, small in character too.  Jesus makes a point of touching him with his love – and it changed him forever.

There isn’t much more to say, really.

Some people – whom the world sees as irredeemable – are the very ones God touches in the most profound of ways.

I need to remember that…

  • When I am frustrated with others
  • Critical
  • A little too self-righteous in my attitude
  • Too unforgiving

How else can I love, as I have been loved?
