Today’s Gospel proclamation talks about Zacchaeus who desperately wanted to see Jesus that he overcame his obstacle of being short by climbing a tree, just to get a glimpse. Though he was considered to be a sinner he wanted to see the Lord. We have our own limitations and obstacles that keep us away from the Lord. These obstacles can range from time constraints to physical ailments or other commitments. Often our obstacles become our main focus and drive us away from the Lord. When Zacchaeus broke his limitations, he was seen by Jesus. Breaking his barriers on his own accord and his willingness to see the Lord is all it took to find favor with the Lord. Can we break our barriers? Can we find time in our busy lives to see our Lord? Can we make time for prayer over everything else that is important in our lives? When we do that we experience the Lord; our lives are transformed and we begin to journey with the Lord. Are we ready to break our limitations?
Prayer: Abba Father, help me to see you and to know you. Amen.
