He sets the scene, sets the table, and sets the guest list. Our job is not to rearrange the scene, the table, or his guest list.

Are you confused about what I’m talking about? If so, this sermon based on Luke 14:1-24 will make it clear. In it, Jesus talks about meals (both in this life and in the life to come) to make us other-serving instead of just self-serving. He encourages both humility and generosity.
The sermon is called The Lord of the Party.
