In this portion of Luke 14, Jesus has been invited to the home of a ruling Pharisee for dinner. As He observes power-mongering and selfishness on display, He takes the opportunity to teach the people and the host about the priorities of God.

As we are faithful to put God and then others before ourselves, we will realize amazing opportunities to share the gospel of Christ.
