You Are Important

Jesus often spoke to large groups of people. But sometimes Jesus ministered to just one person. Our Bible Reading today tells us about a man whose life was changed when he met Jesus.
Zacchaeus was a tax collector. Most tax collectors were dishonest and stole money from the people. So probably most Jews did not like Zacchaeus. But that didn’t matter to Jesus. Jesus loved him!
Our Bible Reading tells us that Zacchaeus was a short man. Perhaps people made fun of him or ignored him because he was short. But that didn’t matter to Jesus. Jesus took time to be with Zacchaeus and talk with him.
Sometimes we may think that we are not important to God. It is hard to understand how God can pay attention to all the people in the world. But Psalm 139:3b says that God knows everything we do!
Remember today that God loves you and that you are important to Him!
