Bible Commentary for Luke 14:20

Wesley's Notes for Luke 14:20


14:18 They all began to make excuse - One of them pleads only his own will, I go: another, a pretended necessity, I must needs go: the third, impossibility, I cannot come: all of them want the holy hatred mentioned #Lu 14:26|. All of them perish by things in themselves lawful. I must needs go - The most urgent worldly affairs frequently fall out just at the time when God makes the freest offers of salvation.

14:21 The servant came and showed his lord these things - So ministers ought to lay before the Lord in prayer the obedience or disobedience of their hearers.


Discussion for Luke 14:20

  • John madden on Luke 14:20
    Ive gotten married and cant come.no doubt he accepted the invatation according to tradition.to he invited to a banquet was a great call to attend seems if he truly wanted to go he would have made an effort to bring his wife.but it seem an excuse is what he needed to not attend how many will not heed to the invatation god gives for heaven.many are called but few are chosen.all are invited but many wont come because. With the invatation comes responsibility to follow christ
