This is Literally the Teaching of Christ

This is Literally the Teaching of Christ February 5, 2019

“When you give a dinner or a banquet, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your kinsmen or rich neighbors, lest they also invite you in return, and you be repaid. But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you. You will be repaid at the resurrection of the just.” (Lk 14:12–14).

I once wrote a piece called “Jesus Christ, Financial Advisor” and noted that you don’t generally hear most investment counselors solemnly charge you to make sure that you be sure to give your money to people who will never ever ever be able to make a return on your investment.

The kingdom is not like this world.

Bravo, sir. Well done, good and faithful servant.
