  • What did Zacchaeus do wrong?
  • Why didn't people like him?
  • Why was Zacchaeus so interested in Jesus?
  • Who forgave Zacchaeus?
  • What did Zacchaeus promise to do?
  • Who are some of the people in society that are looked down on because of their skin color, occupation, religious beliefs, political beliefs, or what they've done right or wrong?
  • How do you feel about forgiveness?
  • Are there some people we just don't forgive?
  • What do we do about not being able to forgive? You might read last month's Guest of the Month Immacculee Ilibagiza. She had to forgive big time. Her mom and dad, grandparents, two brothers, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends were murdered by Hutus who thought they were better Tutsis. That's almost like getting rid of all brown-eyed people because they don't have blue eyes. 
  • How can we stop hatred?
