Luke 19:7 KJV
And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner.
When Jesus went into the house of Zacchaeus they that saw it began to murmur. It really does not matter who we try to reach, someone is going to murmur about it.
They all said Zacchaeus was a sinner. Sinners come in all shapes and sizes.
• The woman taken in adultery was a sinner.
• The man born blind was a sinner.
• Zacchaeus, the tax collector was a sinner.
Jesus sought to reach everyone from the woman at the well to the more well to do. He even ate with Pharisees and scribes, who were, by the way, also sinners, willing to reach them with the Gospel.
I am reminded to ignore the complaints of those who watch me and attempt to reach souls where ever I may have opportunity.
