Blessed the man who fears the LORD,
who greatly delights in his commands.
His descendants shall be mighty in the land,
a generation of the upright will be blessed.
Light shines through the darkness for the upright;
gracious, compassionate, and righteous.
It is good for the man gracious in lending,
who conducts his affairs with justice.
Lavishly he gives to the poor;
his righteousness shall endure forever;
his horn shall be exalted in honor. Ps 112: 1-2.4-5.9
One of his fellow guests on hearing this said to him, “Blessed is the one who will dine in the kingdom of God.” He replied to him, “A man gave a great dinner to which he invited many. When the time for the dinner came, he dispatched his servant to say to those invited, ‘Come, everything is now ready.’ But one by one, they all began to excuse themselves. The first said to him, ‘I have purchased a field and must go to examine it; I ask you, consider me excused.’And another said, ‘I have purchased five yoke of oxen and am on my way to evaluate them; I ask you, consider me excused.’ And another said, ‘I have just married a woman, and therefore I cannot come.’ Lk 14:15-20
Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves. Mt 11:28-29
