The Parable of the Great Banquet
12And he also said to the one who had invited him, “When you give a dinner or a banquet, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or wealthy neighbors, lest they also invite you in return, and repayment come to you. 13But whenever you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, 14and you will be blessed, because they are not able to repay you. For it will be paid back to you at the resurrection of the righteous.”
