Scriptural Inspiration: Even Those Matter to Jesus

Time spent with those who were avoided by the leading religious scholars of the time was what Jesus did to show just how much value He placed on every single life. I often wonder if I’m spending enough time with the people who matter most.

Luke‬ ‭15:1-2‬ ‭NRSV
“Now all the tax collectors and sinners were coming near to listen to him. And the Pharisees and the scribes were grumbling and saying, ‘This fellow welcomes sinners and eats with them.’”

Luke‬ ‭15:7‬ ‭NRSV‬‬
“Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.”
