The main things I learned about Zacchaeus growing up came from the song we sang in Sunday School about him. We learned from that song that Zacchaeus was so short, he had to climb a tree to be able to see Jesus passing by. But Jesus noticed him up in the tree, told him to come down, and honored Zacchaeus by going to dinner at his house, which made Zacchaeus very happy.
That song encompasses all the elements of the story (from Luke 19:1-10) except for, you know, the main point. What is the main point of that story and why is it relevant today?
