Zacchaeus climbed a tree because he was abnormally short. Maybe he hated being short; but maybe he would never have met Jesus if he were pushing through the crowd at the same height as everyone else. Zacchaeus climbed the tree as a tax collector. His work and his life were one whole piece, so once he gave His life to Jesus, his behavior at work reflected his understanding of God.
Do YOU ever feel abnormal? Well, there’s good news – you are! Beautifully so! Your physical limitations are the masterpiece of God, your personality is His fingerprint, your gifts are His roadmap, and your experiences (even the bad ones!) are His school. God has already begun to prepare you for purposes you will never be able to achieve without His strength and that you may have never chosen for yourself if given the choice! He wants to leverage your physical design, your personality, your talents, and your experiences to accomplish His purposes in the world.
I am excited to bring my background in human resources, training program management, and abnormal humanity to go tree climbing with you! Let’s get a birds-eye view of how you are uniquely equipped to “be strong and do exploits” for God in the world.
