Read the story of “Zacchaeus” from the New Testament. When Jesus met Zacchaeus, Zacchaeus changes his life. He was a tax collector and not a very nice man. When he heard Jesus was coming to town he wanted to see Him. Zacchaeus was a very short man, so he climbed a tree so that he could see Jesus better. When Jesus saw him, He said “Zacchaeus come on down, I am coming to your house today”. The people were shocked that Jesus wanted to go with him, because no one liked Zacchaeus. After his encounter with the Lord, he changed his life, gave money to the poon and was no longer mean or dishonest.
This story shows how we must model acceptance and tollerance for all people just as Jesus shows us. The story comes with a CD and they will learn the song about Zacchaeus.
