13Jesus went out again beside the sea; the whole crowd gathered around him, and he taught them. 14As he was walking along, he saw Levi son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax booth, and he said to him, “Follow me.” And he got up and followed him. 15And as he sat at dinner in Levi’s house, many tax collectors and sinners were also sitting with Jesus and his disciples—for there were many who followed him. 16When the scribes of the Pharisees saw that he was eating with sinners and tax collectors, they said to his disciples, “Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?” 17When Jesus heard this, he said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick; I have come to call not the righteous but sinners.” (Mark 2:13-17, NRSV)
Jesus calls all of us to follow as He called the first disciples. And He doesn’t need for us to have our lives perfect in the eyes of the world before we come.
Jesus ate and hung out with the people the world said were not a part of the community, the outcasts and sinners.
But Jesus knows we were all created by God perfect just the way we are. So follow Jesus and know you are loved as you are.
