On our way to something important, do we allow detours so we intersect with people and make a difference in their lives? Encounters that may turn their lives, and ours, around.
In this event recorded in the book of Luke, Jesus interrupts his journey for a man known for being corrupt and hated by everyone. Insignificant little Zacchaeus made a fool of himself trying to see Jesus. And yet Jesus showed him friendship, grace and honor instead of condemnation.
Encounters with Jesus like that turns our lives around.
The insignificant to us are significant to Jesus.
Are we open to detours that Jesus brings to our paths?
