Luke-Guests for dinner

Luke 14:12  Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours; lest they also bid thee again, and a recompense be made thee.
Luke 14:13  But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind:
Luke 14:14  And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.
  How many of us do this? I have seen Christians buddy up to "more important" Christians and ask them to dine with them, but how many, other than the local rescue mission invite the poor, the maimed, the lame and the blind?

One measure of a man is how he treats another man that cannot possibly pay him or  help him in any way. As far as the "more important Christian" idea; I think people do tend to want to buddy up to them as opposed to the "lesser" brothers and sisters. We must be mindful of His words...Because you have done it to the least of these my brethren; you have done in unto Me. God bless you Gary. Always enjoy reading your site. space, out
