My Journey to God

Zacchaeus, the Changed Man

Little man with a great big heart,
Curious, you climbed the sycamore tree
To gain an advantageous view of the Master.
How interesting, how humble, that you didn’t simply
Take a place in the front row hoping for a chance
To touch the Master.
Then! The Master spied you, and with a twinkle
Shouted for you to come take a “higher place”
And let you be his host!
Did you nearly tumble out of that tree as you
Hurried to comply with his wishes?
You probably would have given away
Everything if Jesus had even hinted it!
