Matthew 9:9-13

I love that "sinners" felt comfortable around Jesus. I think that's a great example for us to follow. I'm sure he talked to them about their sin. And I'm sure that they were extremely aware that he was different. Nevertheless they still hung out with him. I think it's because he offered them hope. Here was a guy that was happy, and didn't sin. He lived a life that was others-focused and had a great time. The sinners felt empty even though they were enslaved to selfishness. It makes me think about what I can do to make sure that sinners are comfortable around me. I want to display the reason for the hope that I have prominently, but I want people to feel like they can be real around me. JM
