Road to Joy!


Then Jesus said to his host, “When you give a luncheon or a banquet, 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 homeless, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection.”  Luke 4:12-14
