Zaccheaus though he was a child of Abraham had lost the impact of what that covenant relationship was about. He had became so connected to the world system that he cheated and stole all for the sake of money. The Bible teaches that the love of money is the root of evil. What causes evil to attach itself to this earthly affection? Power to self promote and self endulge. But something happened to Zaccheaus Jesus was passing by. When Jesus came to his house his life was transformed. His life was restored. He remembered who he was.
