The Pharisees were not happy Jesus chose the tax collector instead of them. Yet Zacchaeus did not look to be justified by his works. He was willing to use his wealth to show sincerity, faith and repentance. This was counterculture to the Pharisees.
Questions for further thought:
1. Do you get jealous when God uses someone else to prove a point?
2. What gifts can you use for the purpose of faith and repentance?
Challenge: Pray for guidance on how to best use your gifts for the purpose of faith and repentance like Zacchaeus offered.
