Weaknesses and Vulnerabilities

"Zacchaeus was a wee little man..." goes the song.

Luke never says outright that Zacchaeus' small stature led him to compensate with brashly over-colleting taxes from his fellow Judeans. But the insinuation is there.

You can almost hear Zachaeus say to himself, "They think I'm nothing because I'm short, but I'll show them...".

What is something about you that has been perceived a weakness or vulnerability that has driven you to act in a certain way?

Has that drivenness benefitted you and others or been detrimental?

What do you think Jesus would say to you about that perceived vulnerability?
