Jesus was questioned about why he was having a meal with publicans and sinners.  His response: “When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” (Mark 2:17)  It is comforting to know that every day we have a physician that we can call on for help when we are struggling.  He has promised to be with us until the end. (Matthew 28:20)
