Luke 14

April 2, 2011

Here’s how the study works: Read the chapter mentioned in the heading several times during the week and share any words, thoughts, verses that stood out to you. Having a week for a chapter creates the opportunity to reread it several times and make additional comments as you feel inclined as well as make comments on other people’s insights.

  1. v.10 But when you are invited, take the lowest place, so that when your host comes, he will say to you, ‘Friend, move up to a better place.’

    There is no need for us to push ourselves forward, no need to seek the limelight. It is God who will move us up to a better place in due time.

  3. v.33 In the same way, those of you who do not give up everything you have cannot be my disciples.

    This follows two stories about counting the cost before committing. Jesus expects us to count the cost of being his disciple.

  5. v.13-14 But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.

    Don't do things for others in order to be repaid, do things to be a blessing to those who probably won't be able to reciprocate.

  7. v.10 But when you are invited, take the lowest place, so that when your host comes, he will say to you, ‘Friend, move up to a better place.’ Then you will be honored in the presence of all the other guests.

    We are guests, Jesus is the host. This should affect our attitude. Our position in the kingdom depends on God not on us pushing ourselves forward.

  9. v.21 “The servant came back and reported this to his master. Then the owner of the house became angry and ordered his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame.’

    (From Constable’s Commentary) “The host legitimately felt angry in view of his gracious invitation and sacrificial preparations. Rejection constituted a personal insult.”
