Jesus is a perfect friend. And no matter who we are or what we’ve done, Jesus wants a relationship with us. Once, Jesus befriended one of the most disliked people in town, Zacchaeus. This guy didn’t have any friends, and he didn’t act like a friend to anybody…until he met Jesus. You can read the whole story in Luke 19:1-10 in the Bible. You can also check out the videos below!
God’s Story: Zacchaeus
Zacchaeus was a tax collector who had no friends because he took people’s money to make himself rich. Jesus showed him love, and it changed his life. When Zacchaeus realized that Jesus loved him even though he had messed up, he wanted to show that kind of love to others.
