Notes for grown-ups:
Zacchaeus was a rich chief tax collector (Luke 19 v 2). At that time, tax collectors often cheated people by collecting more money than they should, to keep for themselves. The people called Zacchaeus a “sinner” (v 7) because he worked for the Romans, who did not follow God and who ruled over the Jews. The crowd thought Zacchaeus had betrayed them and God. So everyone was surprised when Jesus chose to spend time with him.
Although Zacchaeus had not lived a good life, his heart responded to God when he met Jesus. He changed from his self-centred way of life to follow God and show love towards others. Jesus said that even someone like Zacchaeus can be forgiven, and accepted into God’s family (as a “son of Abraham”), because Jesus came “to seek and to save the lost”. (Jesus calls himself “the Son of Man”, a name for himself from Old Testament
prophesies, v 10.) Jesus had come to die, to pay for the wrong things people have done and to save people who need forgiving.
Zacchaeus was not the only one whose heart was small. Like the crowd and Zacchaeus, we all need to be forgiven and for our hearts to be changed. And this happens when we trust in what Jesus has done for us and start a relationship with God, as Zacchaeus did.
