Parables of the Kingdom - Pt. 3: The Danger of Busy Successful Lives (Video Version)
The Parable of the Great Banquet in Luke 14:12-24
After saying we should only invite people to social gatherings who can't repay us, Jesus launches into a sobering parable about the way many people will miss out on God's kingdom.
It's not through immoral living or even being anti-God; it's simply by being too preoccupied with the everyday cares of what we would call a busy & successful American Dream life.
