Poem: Invite

“But when you give a reception, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed, since they do not have the means to repay you; for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.” Luke 14:13-14

The reception is planned,
Who do you invite?
Friends, relatives, or neighbors,
Who have a fortunate plight?

What about those,
Crippled, lame, blind, or poor?
Why not invite them,
They need it more.

Be abundantly blessed,
Invite those who can’t repay;
Your return won’t come now,
But on resurrection day.

My caring, loving God, how much more blessed is it to give than to receive; especially to give to those who do not have the means to repay. And this, my charitable Lord, is the means by which You take care of Your most prized creation. So many in this world are suffering by being cripple, lame, blind, and poor and it is up to me and others who are more fortunate to look out for their well-being. Wherever I am lacking in this effort please guide me and open my eyes to the people and opportunities that surround me. I want to be a vessel of love that takes care of Your children, not expecting anything in return, but looking forward to the day of resurrection where Your faithful will be repaid beyond anything imagined. Amen.

Truth in love,
