Bible: Matthew 9:10-13

9:10 As 1  Jesus 2  was having a meal 3  in Matthew’s 4  house, many tax collectors 5  and sinners came and ate with Jesus and his disciples. 9:11 When the Pharisees 6  saw this they said to his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners? 7  9:12 When 8  Jesus heard this he said, “Those who are healthy don’t need a physician, but those who are sick do. 9  9:13 Go and learn what this saying means: ‘I want mercy and not sacrifice.’ 10  For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
