22 Apr Luke 5:27

27After this, Jesus went out and saw a tax collector by the name of Levi sitting at his tax booth. “Follow me,” Jesus said to him…    

Do you know Levi’s other name? It’s Matthew! Levi, or Matthew as I prefer to call him, was different. Matthew was not a laborer. He was a tax collector which made him a liar. Tax collectors were absolutely hated! It also meant Matthew was a wealthy man. He even threw a giant party for Jesus with all his friends! What do you think Matthew did when Jesus said, “Follow me.” You bet he followed! No questions, no career, no job, no nothing! Jesus isn’t asking you to leave your family or your school, but is He asking you to follow Him?
