As Jesus ate with some people, one of them said, “Blessed is he who shall eat bread in the kingdom of God.” In response, Jesus spoke a parable of a man who made a great supper and invited many people to it by sending his servant out to those people. However, Jesus continued,
“But they all with one accord began to make excuses. The first said to him, ‘I have bought a piece of ground, and I must go and see it. I ask you to have me excused.’ And another said, ‘I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I am going to test them. I ask you to have me excused.’ Still another said, ‘I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come’” (Luke 14.18–20).
This all illustrated how some people excuse themselves from the Kingdom of God and the riches of it, such as eating with God and all whom He has invited.
- Why do people turn down the Kingdom of God?
- What will it be like to eat with God and all the saints, angels, and all the rest whom God has invited?
