Dinner with Jesus

Can you envisage the dinner conversation between Jesus and the ‘tax collectors and sinners’? Would he have admonished them for their sinful lifestyles? I doubt it. Small talk? Probably. Questioning them about themselves? Yes. Answering their (many) questions? Certainly. But, most importantly, by his conversations with them, and by his very presence among them, making them aware of God’s love for them, his mercy and forgiveness. We, sinners all, should also seek to be in the company of Jesus each day in order to be so reminded.
