Taxman part 2 b
Zacchaeus ran down the road as fast as his little legs could take him. He started to climb up this sycamore fig tree but had trouble because of his small stature. He reached a point in this tree where nobody could see him but Zacchaeus could see the Rabbi approaching along with the huge crowd.
Zacchaeus saw the Rabbi and the crowd approaching the tree and his heart began to race.There was something about this Rabbi that was stirring in his heart. The Rabbi and the crowd were right underneath the tree when something spectacular happened. The Rabbi all of a sudden stopped dead in his tracks and looked up right at Zacchaeus. The Rabbi yelled out loud " Zacchaeus, come down right away for I must stay at your house today". Something came over him and he quickly came down that tree and hugged the Rabbi.
The crowd began to mutter to themselves " the Rabbi has gone to be the guest of a tax collector". Zacchaeus kept hugging the Rabbi and said " Lord, right here I will give half of my things to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount".
Jesus smiled at Zacchaeus and said " today salvation has come to this house for the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost".
