Luke 19:1-10

The crowds were displeased when Jesus went home with the tax collector Zacchaeus.  But despite the fact the Zacchaeus was both dishonest and a turncoat, Jesus loved him, and in response, the tax collector was converted.  In every society certain groups of people are considered “untouchable” because of their politics, their immoral behavior, or their lifestyle.  We should not give in to social pressure to avoid these people.  Jesus loves them, and they need to hear his good news.
