In the Gospel of Luke we hear that Zacchaeus “was seeking to see who Jesus was” but he was short in stature so he climbed a tree so he could see over the crowd.
Zacchaeus did in fact get to “see who Jesus was” more than just physically. Zacchaeus saw Jesus for who he is- the one to come-the one to follow.
Zacchaeus encounters Jesus and his whole life changes. He abandoned his checkered past and commits to living a just life.
Who is Jesus to you?
Are you willing to go out of your comfort zone- to go “out on a limb” to see who Jesus is?
Do you recognize your encounters with Jesus in the Scriptures, in the Sacraments, and in your sisters and brothers who gather in his name?
Will you allow yourself to be changed by your encounters of Jesus?
