Key Verse: Generous persons will prosper; those who refresh others will be themselves refreshed. (Proverbs 3: 13-14)
- How does the story of Zacchaeus affect your understanding of giving?

Thoughts for Today:
The Story of Zacchaeus and Jesus is one of a powerful encounter in which Zacchaeus’ life is changed. It is through this change that he is offered his salvation from greed, power, and corruption. “Zacchaeus did not earn salvation by giving. His generosity was his response to the extravagant generosity of God. But salvation never would have become a reality for Zacchaeus without his movement from a life that was consumed with gaining and saving into a life that was energized by giving.” –James Harnish
