Jesus didn't need the media to attract an audience. Walking the crowded Jericho streets, He even attracted attention from the city's tax collector, Zacchaeus. After spying this rich man perched in a sycamore tree, Jesus called him down; and the crowd complained, "What business does he have getting cozy with this crook?" (Luke 19, The Message)

That's what drew the crowds. Jesus did the unexpected, the unexplained. And He tackled a subject many pastors tend to ignore: money. Dr. John MacArthur points out, "Sixteen of the thirty-eight parables of Jesus deal with money. One out of ten verses in the New Testament deals with that subject. Scripture offers about five hundred verses on prayer, fewer than five hundred on faith, and over two thousand on money. The believer's attitude toward money and possessions is determinative." 1

We can learn from Zacchaeus. As he drew near to Jesus, his prideful, calculating soul was convicted. When he met Jesus, his priorities changed along with his financial stewardship. We should do likewise.

"I judge all things only by the price they shall gain in eternity." --John Wesley
