Mark 2:14-17 New International Version (NIV)
14 As he walked along, he saw Levi son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax collector’s booth. “Follow me,” Jesus told him, and Levi got up and followed him.
15 While Jesus was having dinner at Levi’s house, many tax collectors and sinners were eating with him and his disciples, for there were many who followed him. 16 When the teachers of the law who were Pharisees saw him eating with the sinners and tax collectors, they asked his disciples: “Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?”
17 On hearing this, Jesus said to them, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
Words from pastor:
In this passage we notice something about Jesus Christ and that thing is that Jesus helps everyone. No matter what someones economical status is Jesus Christ will help them. Many times people run away or pretend not to see the so call needy. In this passage we realize Jesus Christ helps them. We as human beings can learn that everyone matters!
