In the Matthew 9:9-13 we read the story of Jesus calling Matthew to be one of his disciples. You see Matthew was a tax collector and in those days’ tax collectors were very low in society they were on the same level as sinners. Often the two are mentioned together and Jesus was accused on multiple occasions of being friends and reaching out to them. I love Jesus’ response to them in Matthew 9:12 it states, “On hearing this, Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick.” Jesus was not concerned what people thought of Him, He was willing to take His message to those who needed it the most.
