Seek and Find

Re:Verse passage – Luke 19:1-10 (day two) When Jesus came to the place, He looked up and said to him, “Zaccheus, hurry and come down, for today I must stay at your house.” Vs 5

 You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13

Much is made of Zaccheus’ size, and being a rather under-heighted individual (I made word up), I have always had a special place in my heart for this story. As I re-read it today I wondered what made Zaccheus stand out. Was it that fact that he was up in a tree? Much like the woman who touched the robe of Jesus in a large crowd, Jesus noticed when someone was desperately searching for him. Zaccheus was intent on being near the Lord, and the Lord came near. Are you searching with that kind of intensity? Do you seek after the savior without regard to what people might think? If you seek him, you will find him.
