Zacchaeus Out on a Limb
What an interesting week? We never know what a day will hold do we? I was observing this with the men Thursday night in our Men’s Study on Job. We never know what a day may hold. Job woke up the greatest man of the east, a righteous man and fabulously wealthy, and went to bed the poorest man in the east, utterly miserable. What a difference a day makes. Zacchaeus woke up the richest man in Jericho, a notorious sinner and fabulously wealthy, and went to bed considerably poorer, and never happier. What a difference a day makes. Luke 19:1, Context. Jesus is on His way to Jerusalem for the last time. As He was making His way south through Samaria and Galilee He was approached by a very rich ruler who wanted to know how to inherit eternal life. Seeing the place money had in his heart, Jesus told him to give all his money to the poor. This man went away very sad because he was extremely rich. Jesus observed how hard it is for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God, that it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of needle. Hang on to your hats, folks, you are about to witness a camel passing through the eye of a needle. What is impossible with man is possible with God.
