Looking at Others

Jesus eating with Sinners

When the teachers of the law who were Pharisees saw him eating with the sinners and tax collectors, they asked his disciples: “Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?” (Mark 2:16 NIV)

Here is the interesting question. If Jesus was instead eating with the teachers of the law, wouldn’t he still be eating with sinners? Aren’t we all sinners? (for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, Romans 3:23 NIV)  According to the Bible, all sin is ranked the same. It is best we are truthful about the sin in our own lives instead of looking at the sin in others.
