14 and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous."

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Luke 14:14

Commentary on Luke 14:7-14

(Read Luke 14:7-14)

Even in the common actions of life, Christ marks what we do, not only in our religious assemblies, but at our tables. We see in many cases, that a man's pride will bring him low, and before honour is humility. Our Saviour here teaches, that works of charity are better than works of show. But our Lord did not mean that a proud and unbelieving liberality should be rewarded, but that his precept of doing good to the poor and afflicted should be observed from love to him.
