Paul’s Letter to the Philippians    2: 1-4

2:1 Therefore, if there is any consolation in Christ, any solace of charity, any fellowship of the Spirit, any feelings of commiseration:
2:2 complete my joy by having the same understanding, holding to the same charity, being of one mind, with the same sentiment.
2:3 Let nothing be done by contention, nor in vain glory. Instead, in humility, let each of you esteem others to be better than himself.
2:4 Let each of you not consider anything to be your own, but rather to belong to others.

The Holy Gospel According to Luke    14: 12-14

14:12 Then he also said to the one who had invited him: “When you prepare a lunch or dinner, do not choose to call your friends, or your brothers, or your relatives, or your wealthy neighbors, lest perhaps they might then invite you in return and repayment would made to you.
14:13 But when you prepare a feast, call the poor, the disabled, the lame, and the blind.
14:14 And you will be blessed because they do not have a way to repay you. So then, your recompense will be in the resurrection of the just.”
