    he views everyone else the lost children of God whom he loves and as people worthy and deserving of salvation The worldly view of worthiness of salvation by the sole virtue of status was turned upside down by the acceptance of Zacchaeus the sinner It doesn t mean that we should accept encourage or agree with things that are wrong but to understand their views and their lives It is not easy to refuse to act how the world acts In life there s always some kind of people who will rub me in the wrong way and sometimes it is difficult to value them despite their and our imperfections Either their actions or attitude makes me want to ignore or dismiss them just like what the crowd is doing and thinking to Zacchaeus In my childhood since I was different than others due to being a minority I would be deliberately picked on and pushed aside by others Unfortunately I would respond in kind doing the same things to them as they had done to me But as I grew older and in my early teens I realized and understood the scripture from John 3 16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life God love us all instead of a select few It also reminds me that we need God to love others we simply couldn t do it ourselves Our sins would just make us continue on a downward spiral which we will pass down the hurt rejections and sins onto others and they in kind pass it onto another This hate will just continue on and get worse With that revelation instead of viewing others as enemies and continuing on and passing down the rejections I view others as children of God The first thing I had to do in repentance would be to stop the things that I was doing rejecting others putting down others and laughing at others actions which was done unto me The interesting thing is many of these actions either of ill intent or good will could be considered little things One such example of little acts of unintentional hurt on others would be the response oh your experience is not so bad I ve seen worse That hurts to be dismissive in that way We all have experienced it and sometimes we would be dismissive like this by accident It wasn t easy to stop doing the things I had done I have acted like that for years so if I had done anything wrong please forgive me it is not deliberate and please let me know Salvation was possible through the sole purpose of Jesus whom we share and proclaimed in our Gospel who is The Son of man Jesus came to seek and to save the lost as said by Jesus in the ending of this passage Jesus hand is
