Imagine a four year old dressed as Abraham Lincoln standing three deep in the crowd, trying to view the Halloween parade passing by. In order to get a better view, this mini Abraham Lincoln’s father picked him up and put him on his shoulders so he could see. Unlike this child, in Luke 19:1-10
, nobody was going to pick up Zacchaeus so he could see Jesus. Father Michael Renninger, Pastor of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Richmond, Virginia, points out that Zacchaeus must find his own way to see Jesus. He must get out of the crowd in order to see. Renninger asks, “What crowds are you stuck in?” Listen as Renninger explores the importance of rising above the crowds to see Jesus.
