For those of us who have lost our way

Morning: Psalm 61, 62; Deuteronomy 30:11-20; 2 Corinthians 11:1-21a
Evening: Psalm 68; Luke 19:1-10
If I had a penny for every person I have heard miss the point and say, “I’m not good enough to be a Christian,” I’d be as wealthy as Zaccheus, the tax collector.  Remember him? Jesus invited himself to Zaccheus’ house.  Jesus’ entire mission was to those who say, with Dante, “In the middle of the journey of our life, I came to myself, in a dark wood, where the direct way was lost.” Distracted or preoccupied, our lives become self-centred.  We are exactly the ones Jesus wants to reach, with the message: “I love you. I can help.”
