Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:5 - And He said to them, “[fn]Which one of you will have a son or an ox fall into a well, and will not immediately pull him out on a Sabbath day?”

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:7 - And He began speaking a parable to the invited guests when He noticed how they had been picking out the places of honor at the table, saying to them,

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:8 - “When you are invited by someone to a wedding feast, do not [fn]take the place of honor, for someone more distinguished than you may have been invited by him,

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:9 - and he who invited you both will come and say to you, ‘Give your place to this man,’ and then in disgrace you [fn]proceed to occupy the last place.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:10 - “But when you are invited, go and recline at the last place, so that when the one who has invited you comes, he may say to you, ‘Friend, move up higher’; then you will have honor in the sight of all who [fn]are at the table with you.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:11 - “For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:12 - And He also went on to say to the one who had invited Him, “When you give a luncheon or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, otherwise they may also invite you in return and that will be your repayment.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:14 - and you will be blessed, since they [fn]do not have the means to repay you; for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:15 - When one of those who were reclining at the table with Him heard this, he said to Him, “Blessed is everyone who will eat bread in the kingdom of God!”

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:16 - But He said to him, “A man was giving a big dinner, and he invited many;

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:17 - and at the dinner hour he sent his slave to say to those who had been invited, ‘Come; for everything is ready now.’

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:18 - “But they all alike began to make excuses. The first one said to him, ‘I have bought a [fn]piece of land and I need to go out and look at it; [fn]please consider me excused.’

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:19 - “Another one said, ‘I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I am going to try them out; [fn]please consider me excused.’

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:20 - “Another one said, ‘I have married a wife, and for that reason I cannot come.’

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:21 - “And the slave came back and reported this to his master. Then the head of the household became angry and said to his slave, ‘Go out at once into the streets and lanes of the city and bring in here the poor and crippled and blind and lame.’

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:26 - “If anyone comes to Me, and does not [fn]hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:27 - “Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:28 - “For which one of you, when he wants to build a tower, does not first sit down and calculate the cost to see if he has enough to complete it?

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:29 - “Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who observe it begin to ridicule him,

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:30 - saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish.’

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:31 - “Or what king, when he sets out to meet another king in battle, will not first sit down and consider whether he is strong enough with ten thousand men to encounter the one coming against him with twenty thousand?

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:32 - “Or else, while the other is still far away, he sends [fn]a delegation and asks for terms of peace.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:33 - “So then, none of you can be My disciple who does not give up all his own possessions.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:34 - “Therefore, salt is good; but if even salt has become tasteless, with what will it be seasoned?

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:35 - “It is useless either for the soil or for the manure pile; it is thrown out. He who has ears to hear, [fn]let him hear.”
