When Jesus came to the place, He looked up and said to him, “Zaccheus, hurry and come down, for today I must stay at your house.” And he hurried and came down and received Him gladly. When they saw it, they all began to grumble, saying, “He has gone to be the guest of a man who is a sinner. (Luke 19:5-7, NASB)
Dear Father God, I’m so sorry for the times I have grumbled and complained when I have watched You work in others. I’m sorry for my critical and judgmental spirit at times. Lord, I pray that You will help me to be constantly aware of my own sin and my need for Christ. May I not judge anyone around me but be thankful for the times when You are at work in others.
Lord, please help me to celebrate when You do great things for anyone I know. May I not be like the people who grumbled in this verse, but may I rejoice when someone comes home to You.
Lord, thank You for doing a tremendous work in my life even when I was undeserving of it. Thank You for never giving up on me!
