After each verse, Kat explains her thoughts from God on that verse:
For this verse, Kat writes: “Let us consider how much of an effort will we make to overcome our limitations, so that we can clearly see Jesus, and figuratively climb the tree, just as Zacchaeus did.”
Always short, sweet, and to the point!!!!
Do we get it???
Don’t be lazy!
Make the effort it takes to see Jesus…
To walk with Him…
To have Him come to our house…
And into our hearts!
Then when He says, “I’m coming in!”
If you were raised in Sunday school, you know the song about Zacchaeus!!!
The song tells of Zacchaeus’s attempts to see Jesus by climbing a sycamore tree, there are a series of hand motions that accompany the song. The song is one of the more popular children’s Bible songs, and has been featured on numerous Christian children’s music collections.
It was my favorite!!
I can still see and hear my Uncle Angelo (my pastor!) singing it to us and teaching us the hand motions…
It’s one of those songs you teach to your children…
I taught my son!!
Here are the lyrics:
“Zacchaeus was a wee little man,
And a wee little man was he.
He climbed up in a sycamore tree
For the Lord he wanted to see.
And when the Savior passed that way
He looked up in the tree.
And said, ‘Zaccheus, you come down!
For I’m going to your house today!
For I’m going to your house today!’
Zacchaeus was a wee little man,
But a happy man was he,
For he had seen the Lord that day
And a happy man was he;
And a very happy man was he.”
Each day, “The Daily Verse” pops into my email…
I can’t tell you how much it has helped set the tone for my day…
For my walk with the Lord…
And how many, many times I’ve felt compelled to forward it to others!
Miraculously, when I have a need, or a family member or friend is going through something…
“The Daily Verse” seems to be just what I need…
What I want to pray for…
And what I want to convey to others!
Thank you, Lord…
For giving Kat the gift of Your insight!!
Make the effort…Jesus is worth it!!
