I am one of the blind, the sick, and the lame

Monday of week 31 of the year, based on Luke 14:12-14

Jesus said also to the one who had invited him to supper, “When you give a luncheon or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, in case they may invite you in return, and you would be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind. And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you, for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”
