When to get involved.

** We are the salt of the earth (Mt. 5:13), and to do any good, we have to get out of the "salt shaker." **

One of the greatest positions we have in this earthly existence is when and where do we get involved?


Luke 19:8 "And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken anything from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold."


Luke 19:1-8 Read the whole text to find the answer.


Zacchaeus was rich but Jesus made no demands for him to give away all his goods to the poor as He did with the rich young ruler. Zacchaeus had already repented and money was no longer his god, as was revealed by his actions. It seems that Zacchaeus was going above and beyond the requirement of restitution as stated in Mosaic law by offering to give half of his goods to the poor and to repay fourfold for his theft.


Publicans were hated by their fellow Jews. They were especially despised by the religious Jews as the epitome of sinners and Jewish religious laws prevented devout Jews from keeping company with any publican. To eat with a publican was unthinkable as the Jews considered this actually partaking of the publican's sins. This is why the people reacted so adversely to Jesus eating with Zacchaeus.


Jesus did not eat at Zacchaeus' house to participate in his sin but to extend mercy and forgiveness to him. This is always the criterion whereby we can judge whether or not we should be involved in a certain situation. We must not participate in other men's sins, but the Lord doesn't want us to retreat to monasteries either. We are the salt of the earth (Mt. 5:13), and to do any good, we have to get out of the "salt shaker."


If we can be in control and minister the love of God, then we are right to associate with sinners.

But when we are being controlled by the ungodliness of sinners, we need to take control or withdraw.
** {Sitting on the sidelines and not getting involved is both a cope out and a total failure to use your God-given intelligence to help others in need.}
