Commentary on the Gospel of
One prides himself at being seated at the presidential table of any banquet. Those getting the prime seats are the important guests. But you’ll never see “the poor, the crippled, the lame and the blind” being led to the presidential table. The good news is that Jesus says otherwise. We are told not to invite our brothers, relatives and wealthy neighbors who can give back the favor but instead invite those who are not included in the guest list. We also belong to that group of the poor and crippled; and our names may not be included in the guest list but Jesus Himself is inviting us to His own banquet. We my not be worthy yet we are considered because we are loved. Allow the Lord to invite you and lead you to the presidential table.
