"And he was seeking to see who Jesus was, but on account of the crowd he could not, because he was small in stature. So he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him, for he was about to pass that way." - Luke 19:3-4
Have you ever seen people peeking through holes in a barrier fence? They may be watching a bulldozer as it tears down a building. Then there are others who are watching a ball game instead of buying tickets for a seat. But, no matter what, they are determined to catch the sight before it was too late.
Zacchaeus was one zealous seeker. He was short and overwhelmed by the large crowd. Yet, he knew that Jesus was passing his way and he didn't want to miss Him. Seeing the Lord was more important than anything. He was determined to catch the sight before it was too late.
How much do you want to see Jesus in the morning? In a way, special moments with the Lord pass by early each day. Are you willing to climb out of bed and seek a close view of Lord in the pages of His Word? Will you be determined to catch the sight before it is too late?
