Good morning.

The parable of the great banquet recorded in Luke 14:16-24 shows us how fickle the heart of man can be.

No doubt each person invited to the banquet had some form of relationship with the man who had invited them. Yet each in his turn had an excuse as to why he wouldn't be attending.

In today's equivalent of the excuses used would be like this:

• I can't come as I'm going to view the property I've just bought. Mmm? Buying property without first viewing it?

• I can't come as I need to test drive my new car. Mmm? Buying a car before you've taken it for a test drive?

This parable demonstrates not so much the weak excuses, rather it shows us that we prioritize personal preference over relationship.

Each one of us is invited to the banquet within our relationship with our Lord. Our priorities will determine whether we take the time to enjoy it.

In our business of life let us not neglect feasting at the banquet with our awesome Lord and Saviour.

Have a good weekend.
