"The Narrow Way" Matthew 7:13-14
Zacchaeus was a man who wanted to see Jesus. In order to do so he had to climb up a tree to see over the crowd. One could wonder if God had a hand in the interesting chain of events that followed. Perhaps God would tree a man just like a hunter would tree a fox. God can call people in interesting ways. Since most of his quarry are not too eager to come to him, maybe God has to tree them first.
Today, Jesus is passing by. Who might have the same faith as Zacchaeus? How many are willing to step out of the crowd and go to the trouble to climb a tree in order to get a closer look at Jesus? Jesus will pick them out of the crowd and their lives will never be the same forever and ever.
