S – Mark 2:15 “Later, Levi invited Jesus and his disciples to his home as dinner guests, along with many tax collectors and other disreputable sinners. (There were many people of this kind among Jesus’ followers.)”
O – Jesus hung out with people who were considered the “sinners” of his time. Two verses later we read Jesus words: “Healthy people don’t need a doctor—sick people do. I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners.”
A – I want to make a point to put myself in the company of “disreputable” people. I want to look for opportunities to help those who are sick spiritually.
P – Lord, help me see the opportunities you give me to minister to people that the religious world looks down on.
Are you loving sinners well? What needs to change in your life to love them better?
