‘Happy those who are at the feast in God’s kingdom.’

Jesus’ story today is about welcoming people into his Father’s kingdom. We are all invited, but some of us may be waiting for ‘better offers’. When we reflect on what Jesus offers—peace, happiness, health and joy—why is it that we prefer a different choice? What are my criteria in life? Status? Appearance? Popularity? Financial wealth?

Early this year I suffered a very serious loss. The people who supported me through this period were not those held high in the community or those endowed with material possessions. My supporters fitted the picture of Jesus in Philippians—the humble people of this earth, those who give freely, with no expectation of return. These people, like those in Luke’s story, will enjoy the feast in the kingdom.
