But Jesus had the solution to this sort of drop off rate. He admonishes his listeners not to invite the likely guests, but to invite losers - people who are just grateful that they got an invitation! Best of all? Jesus' solution dismantles all the left over worries as to who did or did not invite you in return to one of their awesome parties.
Here is what he said to the man who had invited him …
"When you give a dinner or a banquet, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, lest they also invite you in return and you be repaid. But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you. For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the just." Luke 14:12-14
