“Then Jesus turned to his host. “When you put on a luncheon or a banquet,” he said, “don’t invite your friends, brothers, relatives, and rich neighbors. For they will invite you back, and that will be your only reward. Instead, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind. Then at the resurrection of the righteous, God will reward you for inviting those who could not repay you.”
Luke 14:12-14 NLT
Truth is vitally important for eternal living in the eyes of Jesus. Hum! Maybe some things he teaches best not to think about. And, if you are like me think this might feel worst than a bee sting please don’t read the other parts of this chapter.
I can hear Julie Andrews singing from the movie, ”The Sound of Music,”
“When the dog bites, when the bee stings
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad.”
Yes, my favorite thing, ”the love of Jesus”. How many ways to try and find ways to tell of how deep, rich, full and without measure his love is for all. Jesus doesn’t want any of his children regardless of their lowely place in life to be left out of our best. WOW! its not about my china and steak dinner but about Hos love and His williness to reward us beyond our thinking for loving others on His behalf!
Isnt His love awesome?
