Luke 5:[27] After this he went out and saw a tax collector named Levi, sitting at the tax booth. And he said to him, “Follow me.” [28] And leaving everything, he rose and followed him.
[29] And Levi made him a great feast in his house, and there was a large company of tax collectors and others reclining at table with them. [30] And the Pharisees and their scribes grumbled at his disciples, saying, “Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?” [31] And Jesus answered them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. [32] I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.”

“Those who are well have no need for a physician, but those who are sick. I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.”

I desire the wrong things sometimes. I say the wrong things sometimes. I omit to say the right things sometimes. I hurt people with my words sometimes. I think evil thoughts sometimes. I think I am  better than others sometimes. Sometimes I speak when I should be quiet and say nothing when I should speak. Sometimes I impugn the motives of others. Sometimes I am short tempered and easily frustrated. I want my own way, get irritated when I don’t, and seek to justify the pursuit of my way over the way of others. I sometimes think that I know better than everybody else, that the successes of my life are because of my superior wisdom or skill and the failures are because of unavoidable circumstances beyond my control. Sometimes I am greedy for more money and things. I sometimes want to be left alone when I should be with others and want to be with others when I should be alone. Sometimes I envy others, want more, resent the rich, look down with scorn on the needy and only pretend to care. I sometimes break the law when I drive and treat the road like it is mine and everyone else is borrowing it from me. I can be rude, quick tongued, self-centred, unloving, unkind, impatient. The list is very long and it is not a happy game to play, this thing that I have just done. I am one sick puppy and I am not proud of the things that I am able to put on this list. It is shameful – and Jesus came for me because I am so desperately sick. And if you think you are not sick – then He did not come for you.
