Then he went out again by the sea; and all the multitude came to him, and he taught them. As he passed by, he saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax office. And he said to him, “Follow me.” So he arose and followed him. Now it happened, as he was dining in Levi’s house, that many tax collectors and sinners also sat together with Jesus and his disciples; for there were many, and they followed him. And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eating with the tax collectors and sinners, they said to his disciples, “How is it that he eats and drinks with tax collectors and sinners?” When Jesus heard it, he said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.” (Mark 2:13-17)
Holy Spirit, please help each of us recognize our need for healing and repentance.
Holy Father, help us responde to Jesus’ call for personal healing.
Jesus, you are my physician — please help me receive the healing and forgiveness you desire for me. Thank you for calling Levi. Lord, our state and local government aare so corrupt in their use of money and power — call many of our officials into your service to follow you as you did with Levi. Thank you.
