NEIGHBOR: After hearing the Bible story from Justin, we learned Jesus loved Zacchaeus even though he did bad things. Even though some of my neighbors today in Quest may have been put in time out or didn’t listen to their mommy or daddy, Jesus loves all of us even when we do something wrong! Neighbors, repeat what we are learning today after me:
