The Guest List

Who would you include on your guest list?
"After these things He went out and saw a tax collector named Levi, sitting at the tax office. And He said to him, 'Follow Me.' So he left all, rose up, and followed Him. Then Levi gave Him a great feast in his own house. And there were a great number of tax collectors and others who sat down with them. And their scribes and the Pharisees complained against His disciples, saying, 'Why do You eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?' Jesus answered and said to them, 'Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance (Luke 5:27-32 NKJ)."
Jewish religious leaders found Levi's guest list offensive. Voicing their objections to Jesus' disciples, they tried to shame them.
The Messiah used the legalistic query as a call to repentance. Friends of Levi were social outcasts; legalistic scribes and Pharisees were blinded by their own self-righteous prejudices.
