Matthew 9:9-12 (KJV)
 As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man
named Matthew sitting at the tax collector’s booth.
"Follow me,' he told him, and Matthew
got up and followed him.
 While Jesus was having dinner at
Matthew’s house, many tax collectors
and sinners came and ate with
him and his disciples.
 When the Pharisees saw this, they
asked his disciples, "Why does your teacher
eat with tax collectors and sinners?'
 On hearing this, Jesus said, "It is not
the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick.
[ 13] But go and learn what this means:
‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.
’[a] For I have not come to call
the righteous, but sinners."
May He bless you richly, as you continue to
live for Him and share His love!
