“He was trying to get a look at Jesus, but being a short man he could not see over the crowd.”
Zacchaeus had a disadvantage that, in the middle of the crowd, left him unable to see Jesus when he came by. But the tax collector was undeterred. He refused to let his disadvantage keep him from his objective.
In our desire to see and know Jesus, we will face some disadvantage, of some sort. The issue is not the disadvantage, but whether we will allow it to discourage us in our objective.
