04/09 Matthew 9:10-11
Later, Matthew invited Jesus and his disciples to his home as dinner guests, along with many tax collectors and other disreputable sinners. 11 But when the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with such scum? ”
Jesus came to the scum-the lost because they were in desperate need of healing. Jesus forgave the lost, He gave them hope and new life. Jesus is Lord.
