““Instead, when you prepare a big meal, you should ask the poor people to come. Ask people that have lost an arm or a leg. Ask people that cannot walk very well, and people that cannot see. Then God will make you happy. Those people cannot pay you for the meal you gave to them. Instead, God will pay you, on the day when he makes good people become alive again.’” Words of Jesus

‭‭Luke‬ ‭14:13-14‬ ‭EASY‬‬

That favorite pew or row at church. Your hangout, workout or shopping buddies. Comfort zones. We all have them and like to travel in their safety. But Jesus challenges us to step outside these safe spaces to follow Him. He calls us to a radical lifestyle of loving extravagantly the least lovable, just as Christ did with us. He ascribes value to those society wants to throw away and seats them at His right hand, treating them (us) like royalty. If we are to be like Jesus, we, too, will need to color outside the lines, part ways with the expected in favor of God’s best. What might you need to change in your day to day life to earnestly model Christ?🚦
