Chances are good you are the person you are because of someone else who showed up in your life: a teacher, a coach, a small group leader. Chances are also good that you are the person you are because of someone you expected to show up but didn’t. Jesus is our model for what it looks like to show in the lives of others. Today, as we look at Jesus’ relationship with Zacchaeus, we’ll discuss one key component to showing up well.

Who are the people who have shown up in your life?

When you think of those people, what characteristics do they share?

How has your life been impacted by the people who have shown up in it?

Can you remember a time someone you expected to show up, didn’t? How did that shape who you are today? How has that affected the way you show up for others?

Read Luke 19:1-10. The crowd only saw Zacchaeus as a “sinner” but what did Jesus see? How did that affect his ability to interact with Zacchaeus?

How did that change Zacchaeus?

Who in your life is impacted by your influence? In what ways could you be more intentional with your influence?
