One family habitually prayed, "Come Lord Jesus be our guest and let this food to us be blessed. Amen" One day the smallest boy in the family looked up at his Dad and said, "Dad, every evening we ask Jesus to come and be our guest, but He never comes. His Father said, "We can only wait for Him to appear!" The little boy thought for a moment and said, "Well, then if we expect Him to come and have dinner with us, why don’t we set a place for him at the table? Wanting to make the little boy happy, his Mother set an extra set of silverware, cup and plate at the end of the table. Just then, they heard a knock on their door. When they opened the door a poor beggar appeared asking for some food. The little boy looked up at his father and said, "Jesus could not come today but He sent this poor man in his place!: With these few words, the beggar was ushered to the table where he enjoyed a wonderful meal. After the plates were cleared the beggar was led to faith in Jesus Christ.
