"When the teachers of the law who were Pharisees saw him (Jesus) eating with the sinners and tax collectors, they asked his disciples: “Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?” (Mark 2:16, NIV)

When Jesus walked among us he was often criticized for the people that he hung out with. In fact, often those within the religious community questioned why he spent time with people whom they saw as being “sinners.”  The thing they didn’t realize though was Jesus just saw these individuals as people that needed to be loved.


But some things haven’t changed – as we  live in a world, which is much like Jesus world, still wants to decide who Jesus came for as well as to whom Jesus should be offered to; but as we are reminded by the scripture time and time again – Jesus came for all – because Jesus loves all.


So may we seek to do the same – may we love as Jesus loves – and Jesus loves all.
