Matthew money not to Jesus? Follow Christ, to pay the price, you ready?
When Matthew 9:9 Jesus calls for disciples, Matthew give up the profits to follow Jesus career. God calling you to follow him, do you also give up as many as Matthew both things? Christians must follow-sometimes there might be some difficulties or suffering choice, we need like Matthew, interceptions that we give up something to follow Christ.
Jesus was and sinners together, I can do?
Matthew 9:10-13 often fraudulent people, and Jesus eating with him, he will damage the reputation of, but still look for Jesus and change. Know that God can change any of the information, we need not fear that to reach those who live in sin in the people.

I can deal with its own problems, I have done quite well, and why I need Jesus?
9:13 thinks justice is not saved, and to follow Jesus must acknowledge that they need, and admit that he does not have all the answers. ( "I love compassion, love offerings" to explain, please Hosea Chapter 7 of the Schedule.)

John's disciples are correct, but would also like to go further, that is to trust Jesus. Your attention is the Torah, or Christians?
