Pastor Thomas Brashears -- As a tax collector, Levi enjoyed a small portion of authority and a relatively large portion of wealth. Levi had lots of friends; all like him. We can imagine that his children anticipated a privileged education, and that his own prospects for advancement were good. Any of us would have liked the advantages enjoyed by Levi. When Jesus called him, Levi's world changed dramatically. His life would be marked forever by the events of that day. He immediately left his work, his financial dreams, and his well-padded position to follow Jesus. Jesus made demands on Levi's life, and Levi responded positively. Jesus also makes demands in our lives. What has Jesus asked you to change? If he were to visit with you, what would he ask you to leave behind to follow him?
