Love Has No Boundaries

Luke 14:13-14
“When you hold a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind; blessed indeed will you be because of their inability to repay you. For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”

Are Jesus’ words not completely opposed to how the world thinks? Jesus gets to the motivation of our actions. When we invite people to a party…do we determine who gets invited by what we believe we will get from them? Do we invite only those who have given us something in the past? Do we invite only those who will not tarnish our prestige, reputation and position? Jesus says we should invite those who have nothing to give or to repay. Invite all those who have been purposely left out and are on the fringes. Jesus, the Son of God, knelt and washed the feet of those who could give Him nothing in return. Paradoxically, this is the path to experiencing the true joy of the Gospel! How might I experience this joy today?
