FCA Jackson middle school

Today my youth pastor from Emmanuel, Jen Sargent, spoke at FCA from Luke 19:1-10. She spoke about Zacchaeus. A part that stood out to me was Luke 19:8. It says “Meanwhile, Zacchaeus stood before the Lord and said ‘I will give half of my wealth to the poor, Lord, and if I have cheated people out of their taxes, I will give them back four times as much!” This shows that Zacchaeus may not have been honest in the past when he cheated people with their taxes but he gave back. Not only did he give back, but he gave back four times as much. Jen challenged us today to make someone feel loved that may feel like a Zacchaeus because of their reputation. So today, instead of sitting with a friend I sit by everyday at lunch, I invited someone else to sit by me. It was something very small and I feel like I can do more and I will.
