The Parable of the Great Banquet
Bible VersesLuke 14:12-24
October 10, 2021
When we find ourselves spending time with people, we naturally fellowship with people like us. When we do, we become members of a clique. We become insiders in our social groups. We enjoy people within our social groups because they reciprocate conversation. They reciprocate hospitality. One week, we invite them to lunch. Next week, they invite us to lunch. Such relational dynamics are so natural to us that we never stop to consider: Who does God want us to invite into fellowship with us? Does God solely want us to extend an invitation to those like us? What does God have to say about this topic?
