"Let Your Light Shine" (Matthew 5:16)


Being accurate and honest.

Luke 19:1-10

Zacchaeus was a tax collector, known for how rich he had become – likely by being dishonest and keeping some tax money for himself. But one day, Jesus came to Zacchaeus’ town and Zacchaeus had the chance to meet him. In fact, Jesus went to his house!

What Zacchaeus did next was amazing! He told Jesus that he would give half of his possessions to the poor and that he would pay people back 4 times what he had cheated them, “Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount.”

Not only does Zacchaeus see the error of his ways, but he has atotal change of heart. He no longer wanted to live a dishonest life, but an honest one – because he came to know and believe in Jesus.
