We’re telling the story of Zacchaeus this February. It’s one of those classic Bible stories that always makes me grin when I share it. Can you imagine climbing up in a tree to see Jesus only to have Him point you out. Then, He’s inviting Himself over to your house. Talk about a life changing day!

If you grew up in church, you probably heard this story several times in your Sunday School rooms. In fact, you probably remember it well because there’s this catchy little tune that somebody wrote long ago that goes with the story. Do you remember it?

We included singing the song in one of our Make It Stick activities just for those of you who can’t tell the story of Zacchaeus without singing right along. We also provided hand motions for those of you who want them.

I recorded my ever helpful daughter doing the song last night (excuse the quality – we’re talking phone recording here people) so you could see it and hear it. You know, just in case you forgot it. Of course, once you hear it, it’s stuck in your head. Zacchaeus was a wee little man…..
