TRINITY KIDS LIVE!

week 2 | March 29

Bible information:

This week’s lesson is found in Luke 19: 1-9 (The story of Zacchaeus is only found in the book of Luke).

INTRODUCTION:

When we read the story of Zacchaeus the Bible mentions his short size. There is so much more to learn about Zacchaeus than just his size. 

Zacchaeus was a chief tax collector, this was something that he did for a living, but it had also allowed him, to be a thief. Zacchaeus took more taxes (money) than was necessary and kept the extra for himself. The people in Jericho knew what he was doing, but this did not change Zacchaeus. He continued to take from people, and he became very rich. 

The whole town was talking about this great prophet known as Jesus. The townspeople were waiting to see Jesus, and Zacchaeus wanted to see Jesus too.  He pushed and jumped but could not see over the crowd. So he climbed the Sycamore Tree, he thought he would just see the prophet, but what he saw was the truth…Jesus!

Jesus stood at the bottom of the tree, looking up at Zacchaeus, Zacchaeus could see Jesus looking at him. What Zacchaeus did not understand that what Jesus was about to say would change his whole life. Jesus said, “Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today.” Jesus was telling everyone that he valued and loved Zacchaeus. It did not matter what he had done, how much money he took, he still loved him. Zacchaeus was forever changed by the love of Jesus. He changed his ways, he gave back all that he stole, plus an extra four times. 

Jesus loves everyone and wants to be their forever friend. We also need to show everyone we know the same kind of love that Jesus showed Zacchaeus.
