Zacchaeus Righted His Wrongs

There was no mention of, “Don’t commit the crime if you can’t do the time.” Instead, there was genuine love, repentance, and forgiveness. What are you doing to right your wrongs?

There was a short rich man named Zacchaeus that climbed a sychomore tree in order to see Jesus as he came through Jericho. When Jesus saw him, he said, “Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for today I must abide at thy house.” (Luke 19:5) Zacchaeus rushed to come down, but as he departed with Jesus, the people complained that Jesus was eating with a sinner. Zacchaeus defended himself and said, “Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I gave to the poor; and if I have taken anything from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold.”
Jesus responded to Zacchaeus by saying, “This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham. For the Son of man is come to seek and save that which was lost.” (Luke 19:9-10)
Based upon this scripture, Zacchaeus must have also been living with his first wife and first family because he said that he was a son of Abraham.
