Morning Thought: Remember Zacchaeus. Because of his height, he climbed a tree to see Jesus. It’s hard for us to see Jesus through the crowd. People and their opinions blind our view. Today, break away from the crowd and climb the tree of the cross. Then you will have the right perspective. From the cross you can truly see Jesus. Have you climbed that tree yet? “He [Zacchaeus] wanted to see who Jesus was, but because he was short he could not see over the crowd. So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way” (Luke 19:3-4, NIV).
