True or False? Luke 14:12-14

"Then Jesus said to his host, 'When you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your friends, your brothers or sisters, your relatives, or your rich neighbors; if you do, they may invite you back and so you will be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.'” (Luke 14:12-14)

Does this apply to Christians today? If so, Jesus tells us who not to invite to lunch. He gives us the reason - they will owe us a lunch back.

He also tells us who to invite to a banquet and why. We will be repaid at the resurrection.

How many Christians (including yourself) obey these directions?
