Do the Right Thing | Luke 14:13-14

Read This Passage: Luke 14:7-14

13 But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind. 14 And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you; for you shall be repaid at the resurrection of the just.

Luke 14:13-14 NKJV

Here is Jesus calling on people to simply do what is right. Jesus said this to a room of religious leaders that believed themselves to be holy and righteous but they were only righteous in their eyes. The religious leaders loved the best places at feast which Jesus saw in action and despised. Jesus despised the religious leaders because they were all about themselves and nobody else; we should not ever be so selfish.

Jesus used this setting to teach a very valuable lesson to those religious leaders. Jesus said, “when you give a feast, invite the poor, the maimed, the lame, and the blind.” Jesus was encouraging for them to invite those who were in need over to the feast so that they could join in. The notion here is that when one is in need and you have the ability to help, you should go over and beyond to help and be a blessing! But sadly again, we live in a world where it often seems that those who have the ability to help, are too selfish and greedy to help while those who have very little, often end up being the ones to help.

Let us do our best to help those that are in need especially when we have the ability to do so. Help, whether that is materially, monetarily, emotionally, or spiritually – help the one that stands in the need of help. When we go about helping those who are in need, Jesus that we will be repaid at the resurrection of the just – the faithful; this is a repayment of eternal peace and joy in the kingdom of the Lord
