Who's Coming to Dinner? (OGW -018)

In today’s gospel passage Jesus talks about how you should behave if you are an invited guest to a lunch or dinner, and if you are the host, who you should be inviting.

This passage can be difficult for us today as we ask ourselves, “Am I supposed to be inviting strangers into my home and feeding them?”

What if you are not in a position to do that?  Do you just ignore this passage altogether?

While contextually Jesus is speaking about the people of Israel and the Gentiles of his time, his ultimate teaching about unconditional love and selfless giving is everlasting and very relevant for us today.

Tune in and share with a friend! You can find today's episode of Opening God's Word at janetcassidy.blubrry.net.
