28 August 2022 - 12th Sunday after Pentecost - For the third time in Luke, Jesus dined with the Pharisees and while there he healed a man and used the opportunity to teach. His instruction on how to behave at such events was not just good social advice for the times, but more essentially it's a challenge for his followers to live in such a way that reveals God’s generous nature with the undeserving. He also reminds us that it is not wrong to expect a reward but that compensation will come from God Himself and not those who benefit from our generosity.
Readings: Jeremiah 2:4-13 - Hebrews 13:1-8, 15-16 - Luke 14:1, 7-14
