LESSON FOR JUNE 14
THE FRIEND OF SINNERS.
LESSON TKXT-Luko 18.3-H; 19:1-10.
GOLDEN TEXT "I enmo not to onl
the righteous but sinners." Mark 2:17.
Tho flret section of our lesson is tho
beginning of a new paragraph (seo
R. V.) and contains ono of tho Mas
ter's best-known parables. Immedi
ately preceding this Is tho parable of
tho unjust Judgo artd tho importunato
widow. Wo aro plainly told (v. 9)
why tho Master spako this parable.
It is easy to say that thoeo who trust
ed In their own righteousness and "sot
all others at naught" (K. V.) wore tho
Pharisees, but such is not the cose;
and this parable is a warning to ue,
loBt wo also trust our own righteous
ness (Iso. 64:6. Using this particu
lar class as a background, Jesus
paints, in words of simple grnndeur,
a picture qulto familiar throughout the
ages. In it ho reveals tho falseness of
human standards and declares tho
Judgment of heaven. The contrast la
vivid. Lot us look at (J) the Phari
see. Tho illuminating phrase is in the
words "ho prayed with himself"
(v. 11). Ostentatiously tho Pharisees
separated themselves from their fol
low men and this separation seems to
havo extended even Into his prayer
llfo, and he Is withdrawn from God
also. This is an appalllqg picture
of tho man who trusts only himself
Examlno his prayer and wo seo the
supposed prayer is really a paean of
self-exaltation. It is truo he begins
by nscrlbing it to the Deity, but ho
ascribes no praiso to God, no thank
fulness for blessings received; Indeed,
he ignores God throughout after tho
introduction. On tho other hand, his
only recognition of other men is that
of contempt for them. H6 Is con
cerned altogether with his own ex
cellencies and with the delinquencies
of othors. "I am not as the reBt of
men" (v. 11 It V.). Ho extols proper
virtues of morality, religiousness, or
thodoxy and generosity, but went
Humility of Heart.
(2) The Publican regarded himself
as "tho sinner" (v. 13 It. V. marg.).
He knew ho was a great, an Irrelig
ious offender against law and graco.
He had sacrificed everything to ac
quire money. Ho comes with no out
ward show except an abundant evl
denco of tho shame and humility of
his heart Ho also was excluded from
men but not from God. Burdened
with the sense of his sin, ho casts him
self upon the mercy of God. Ho Is
absolutely devoid of any trust in him
self, any contempt for others, and
makes a straight, earnest, passionate
abandonment of himself nnd his need
to God. Ho goes away "Justified"
(Judged right). Why? Because ho
had taken the right place, a sinner's
place before God, and found pardon.
No ono who claims a place before God
because he is a righteous man will
be Justified in his sight. The truo
way to God Is the one of the Publican,
not that of the Pharisee.
II. The Second Section is a story
and deals with au individual case, Zac
cheus, who was n "chiof Publican."
Jesus sought him (seo Golden Text),
whereas Zaccheus was animated by
curiosity, and the writer informs us
ho was small of stature, hence tho
necessity of climbing tho sycamore
tree. He went up the tree because
of curiosity, he came down because
of conviction. He wanted to see this
man in the center of tho crowd and
was amazed to hear Jesus call him by
name and with tho authority of a
king commands his friendship and
Must Yield Wealth.
Zaccheus was rich, dishonest, dissat
isfied, but desperately in earnest, and
a man of prompt decision. The esti
mation of his fellow-citizens Is Indi
cated by v. 7. Notwithstanding nil of
this Zaccheus was not so wedded to
his money as to let it keep him out
of the kingdom. In chapter 18 wo
read of the rich man who "lacked ono
thing." Ho was lost "went away"
because he would not yield his weirlth
(see also 18:2G, 27). What took place
within the house of Zaccheus wo aro
not told, but for tho Master to enter
was looked upon cltljer as amazing
ignorance of Zaccheus' character or
else extreme carelessness concerning
the maintenance of his own character.
Jesus was dealing with one man, not
the multitude, hence he leaves them to
their amazement. Whllo this Is true,
yet wo can surmise something of that
Interview by thu result (v. 8) for Zac
cheus seems to hnvo made a public
avowal pf his ethical and moral
change of heart. Noto the steps:
(1) Ho "sought to see Jesus," John
3:14, 16; iBa. 4D:22. (2) Ho was vtry
much in earnest, "climbed a sycamore
tree," Luko 13:24. (3) He made no
delay, "make haste" Iso. 55:6. The
result wus that of great blessing to
tho people and Joy tn tho heart of
Zaccheus. (4) Ho was obedient, Joy
ously nnd promptly. Tho genuineness
of his transformation was evidenced
by tho wny it affected his pockotbook.
Ho mado abundant restitution and
gavo bountifully to tho poor. Tho
love of God shed abroad iu ttte heart
of a miserly, selflBh man qr church
will promote honesty botii to God and
moni and make men large-hearted,
self-forgetting, ministering saints,
Prov. 11:24; Rom. 12:13; II Cor. 8:5.
It was as "Son of Man" that Jesus
went to the house of Zaccheus. God's
pattern, God'o man. Ho mado no ref
erence to race, nor to caste. His pur
pose wus to reach a "LOST" man and
'twas for such ho camo Into fho world,
