Today my pastor preached on Luke 14 morning and evening. He is going through Luke. The morning was about inviting the needy to feast so that your reward is in heaven because they can't reciprocate. He was saying that we are the needy invited to Christ's banquet and are compelled to ask "why me" with gratitude. The evening was about the cost of following Christ. One must put Christ before anything else and he willing to give up anything for the kingdom of God. This requirement does not contradict the need to respect parents even though we should honor Christ more than family should the latter contradict the former. Feel free to post about your sermon(s) you heard or preached also.
