Based on Matthew 9:9–13.
One day the Pharisees saw Jesus and His disciples having a meal with some tax collectors and other people who had bad reputations. The Pharisees, who often criticized Jesus, started to criticize Him for eating with people they referred to as “tax collectors and other sinners.”
Jesus told them, “Those who are sick are the ones who need a doctor, not those who are healthy. You need to learn what is meant by the scripture that says: ‘It is loving kindness that I want, not sacrifices.’1 I didn’t come to call respectable people but the sinners.”
1 Hosea 6:6
