Reaching Out

When was the last time you invited the uncool, the not so perfect, the lost to your house for dinner? You know who I mean. The guy who smokes or the one with the weight problem. Worse yet maybe he does not belong to your social class. He could be richer or poorer than you, for one reason or another we judge and avoid. I know we all want to hang with our own kind, it’s natual. I’m guilty of such behavior. I judge quickly, and shy away too easily from meeting others less like me. It’s much easier for me to converse with educated, well dressed, good looking people (that’s the kind of person I think I am, right!), and I’m certainly more likely to invite them to dinner. But is that what Christ did?
