Great Dinner?

You've been there. We were invited to a home last night where a poster sign greeted us, drawn by all the kids in the family. A fire was burning in the outdoor fireplace, and we were greeted with hugs by the husband and wife and we went outside for appetizers and gentle conversation. Then the kids came out and we got down to business with some serious Piailla (sp?) of crabs, lobster, mussles and large shrimp. We gorged ourselves. Then came coffee and a home-made tart and more conversation until the little one came out and told us it was time for us to go home. We went home full and loved.
Jesus was invited to Simon's home with minimal welcome or hospitality. The nice stuff was on the far end of the table with Simon and his friends. Until the woman from the city showed up and showered Jesus with her tears, hair and perfume. Now he was welcomed.
