What have we done with what God has entrusted us to do?
Levi reacted as Jesus would want the entirety of his supporters to do, he followed his Lord promptly, and he assembled his companions to meet him as well. Levi left a worthwhile and exploitative tax-collecting business to follow Jesus. Then Levi held a gathering for his kindred collectors and other scandalous sinners so they could meet Jesus as well. Levi left behind a material wealth to acquire spiritual wealth, and he was glad to be related with Jesus.
The Pharisees enveloped their wrongdoing by trying to be respectable. They caused themselves to look good by performing beneficial deeds publicly and pointing out the transgressions of others. Jesus decided to invest time and energy with individuals who detected their own transgression and realized that they were not adequate for God, not with these self-righteous, proud, and boastful religious leaders. We must repent of our sins that it may be possible to come to God. And for us to be possible to renounce our sins, we must recognize them for what they are.

What had Paul done after he met Jesus? He told others. If we have heard the message, then we are responsible to tell the message to others. Jesus told his disciples to go and tell others, so that they would tell others and so on, and so on.
