SECOND WORD OF GOD LUCAS - (Luke 19.1 to 10)
"At that time, Jesus had entered Jericho and was passing through the city. 2Havia was a man named Zacchaeus, who was chief of the tax collectors and very rich.
3Zaqueu sought to see who Jesus was, but could not because of the crowd, it was very low. 4Then he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore tree to see Jesus, who was to pass that way. 5When Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said, "Zacchaeus, come down quickly! Today I must stay at your house. "
6Ele came down quickly and received him joyfully.7Ao see this, everyone began to murmur, saying: "He was staying at the house of a sinner"8Zaqueu stood, and said to the Lord: "Lord, I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anyone, I will give back four times more."9Jesus told him, "Today salvation has come to this house because this man too is a son of Abraham. 10Com effect, the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost. " ( 1 )
A. BIGCUORE´S REFLECTION.. The Evangelist Luke reports on Sunday today, a character named Zacchaeus, who was a tax collector. For the Jews, it was an evil person view, for stealing his compatriots to give the Romans in the form of taxes.
Key words of today's scene: Jesus, Zacchaeus, tax collector, meeting, tree, guest, conversion, donation of goods to the poor etc.
As Zacchaeus was short in stature, he climbed the tree to SEE JESUS!The Master, always very attentive and detail-oriented, had the knowing and the call to come down the tree because he wanted to stay in your home."Come down quickly, Zacchaeus, for today need to stay in your home," says the Master Jesus literally.
Zacchaeus was moved before the assertion of Jesus, and go to your MEETING, open your heart and say that would HALF of all his possessions to the poor and had stolen if someone would give four times !!!
Jesus, surprised and moved, he says: "TODAY SALVATION HAS ENTERED IN THIS HOUSE!"
Please note that the Master NOT condemns the rich !. It opens the possibility of salvation to all people of good will. God always sees the heart, before reason. Realize the authenticity of feeling Tax Collector, and also go to your MEETING to enable him to salvation.This, on the other hand, shocks the Pharisees! They are outraged and say, "He was staying at the house of a sinner."
The divine logic is quite different from ritualistic human logic. Jesus breaks paradigms when accommodating prostitute, welcomes those who suffer from any physical ailments, lepers, for example, the lame and the blind. He eats in the house of "tax collectors" etc.
CONCLUDES THE MASTER: "IN FACT, THE SON OF MAN CAME SEARCH AND SAVE WHAT WAS LOST".
Our bias is that prevent us from "seeing" Jesus !; they also prevent the seed of Grace of God germinates in our hearts.To be disciples of Jesus, it is imperative HOSTING weaker and have a warm and compassionate heart.My brothers and sisters in Christ, have a happy and santo domingo! May the grace and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ, become lodged in their hearts! Amen.
