Verse(s): “For the Son of Man has come to seek and save what was lost.” – Luke 19:10

Reflection: Zacchaeus was a wealthy tax collector, a person rejected by the people due to the nature of his business.  Jesus seeks out Zacchaeus as well as all sinners and the lost.  There are times in my life when I was counted among the lost.  We can take confidence in knowing Jesus is always seeking us out and all we have to do is open our hearts to Him.  We are called to be Jesus to others, and in the same way He reached out to us, we should reach out to those who may be lost.  We should especially reach out in any way we can to those who may be considering an abortion and to post-abortion women.  In doing so, we allow Jesus to work through us in bringing the lost back to Him.

Faith Challenge:  Pray for all those who didn’t choose life or abortion workers, knowing Christ’s grace and abundant healing is available to anyone who asks for it.
