It is better to give than receive. Jesus’ words to his host reflect this popular saying many of us would reject, or at least ignore. But we all know there is great pleasure in making other people happy or simply easing the pain of their loss and heart ache.
We are to invite others into our hearts through our compassion and charity. Our friends, brothers, sisters and relatives are already there. We just need to make room for others to dine. Repayment is not needed. Loving our neighbor is expected of us with no compensation required.
Deacon David Pierce
