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

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. 
This is what the ancients were commended for.

By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, 
so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.

Hebrews 11:1-3

through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who is alive and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
