I love the Gospel of Matthew because of Matthew himself. If we ran into him on the street, we’d probably steer clear of him. Yet it was to Matthew that Jesus extended his invitation to follow. Matthew invites us to look beyond ourselves and see the humanity in others, even the despised, the rejected and the outcast, for they too are worthy of God’s invitation to follow.
