The Gospel of Luke Chapter 14 v- 11 thru 14
11 “For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.” 12 Then he said to the host who invited him, “When you hold a lunch or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or your wealthy neighbors, in case they may invite you back and you have repayment. 13 Rather, when you hold a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind; 14 blessed indeed will you be because of their inability to repay you. For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”
I believe the meaning of life lies in living humbly and helping those who can't repay us. It's about making a positive impact on others without expecting anything in return. There's something truly fulfilling about selflessly serving others, especially when they can't offer anything back. It's about showing compassion and empathy towards those less fortunate. When we extend a helping hand to those who can't repay us, we create a ripple effect of kindness and generosity. It's a way to make the world a better place and leave a lasting impact. Obviously, it also ties into our own personal growth and maturity. By putting others before ourselves, we learn to appreciate what we have and develop a sense of gratitude. It helps us become more compassionate and understanding individuals. A true way to cultivate humility and remind ourselves of our interconnectedness with others. It allows us to step outside of our own desires and focus on the well-being of others. And in doing so, we often find a sense of purpose and fulfillment that goes beyond our own individual needs.
Truth be told its interesting how helping others who can't repay us can actually bring us a sense of joy and fulfillment. It's almost as if by giving, we receive something intangible in return. I think that's because true happiness comes from within, and by helping others, we tap into our innate desire to make a positive impact. It's a way to align our actions with our values and make a meaningful difference in the lives of others. I believe that living humbly and helping those who can't repay us is a universal principle that brings a sense of purpose and fulfillment to our lives. It's about finding meaning in being of service to others and creating a more compassionate and interconnected world. By living this way, we can truly make a difference and find deeper meaning in our own lives. It's inspiring to think about how our actions, no matter how small, can contribute to a greater purpose and bring meaning to our existence. Let's strive to live humbly and continue to help those who can't repay us, knowing that our actions have the power to make a positive impact on the lives of others even if your own family will deny you forgiveness living with humility strives for passion, purpose and peace of living Salvation no matter what. Amen.
Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. The Lord’s Prayer. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen Son in Law Mark Stern; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. We pray for Holy Mother Church. Our prayers for a friend and his wife for a baby to be born has been answered; she is 26 weeks pregnant with a little boy. Praise God thank You Jesus. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**Nothing expected no need of greed**
Yourself exalt humility concede
Yielding humility love you will breathe
Exalted in truth of humility’s deed
Nothing expected no need of greed
