Saint or No Saint?
No one liked Zacchaeus. He was a chief tax collector, which meant he was a cheat and a thief. He took from those who did not have enough, and got richer and richer himself. So why on earth, of all the people gathered in Jericho to see Jesus, did Jesus choose to stay at Zaccheus’ house? What did Jesus see in Zaccheus that all those who knew him had missed? What does Christ see in those we condemn, that we miss? What does Christ see in us that we cannot see in ourselves? Listen as Pastor Melanie Vaughn-West talks about how we can try to claim some of our own unrecognized sainthood.
