Verse of the Day: 'Invite the Poor'

By the Web Editors 12-03-2012
When you give a luncheon or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, in case they may invite you in return, and you would be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind. And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you, for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous. - Luke 14:12-14 + Sign up to receive our social justice verse of the day via e-mail
