'HE SCENE of the lesson today
he same aa in last week's les
somewhere in Peraea, the prov-
of Palestine, opposite Judea,
the eastern side of the river
dan. The time was January, A.
Vans was dining with a Phari
see and his friends, and He had
just finished telling- them that the
type of guest they should invite
to their feasts was the poor, the
maimed, the lame and the blind,
because they would not be able to
return the favor. In other words,
the host would not be trying to
gain benefits from such guests.
As our Lord finished this speech,
a man near Him said: "Blessed is
he that shall eat bread in the
kingdom of God." This man
thought, doubtless, that the talk

was getting a little out of hand.
He was afraid Jesus would say
something to offend, and he tried
to change the conversation. Jesus
answered him by telling another
parable. "A certain man made a
great supper and asked many peo
ple to it When all was ready he
sent his servant to those' invited,
saying. 'Come, for all things are
, now ready."
Instead of hurrying to the feast
as real friends would, rejoicing at
the chance to eat the good food
and have a happy time, each one
made some flimsy excuse. One
said he had bought a field and must
go to look at it Another announc
ed that he had bought some oxen
and must try them. And still an
other explained that he had mar
ried and could not leave his home, j
Naturally the host was very hurt
and angry. 'Go out quickly into
the streets and lanes of the city,"
he said to his servant, "and bring
in hither the poor, the maimed,
and the halt, and the blind.
Still Not Enough
The servant did as his lord bid,
and came to him again to say he
had done so, but there were still
not enough. "Go into the high
ways and hedges," he- answered,
"and compel them to come in, that
my house may be filled. For I
say unto you, That none of these
men that were bidden shall taste of
my supper." '
The refusal or tnese men to come
to the supper of the man who had
invited them was an insult, for
none of the excuses given were im
portant enough to keen them awav
if they had wanted to partake of
tne Lord's bounty. The things we
are doing may seem of large im
portance to us at the time; but are
they, when we consider what it
means to us to be forever kept
away from His hospitality?
Next Jesus reminded those that
followed Him that in order to be
a true disciple, it was necessary
for a man to leave all his kith
and kin even to hate them if they
would hinder him in his mission
and to "bear his cross and come
after Me." He must not valua
even his own life if it interfered
with the service of the Master.
Giving His reasons for this, Jes
"For which of you, intending to
build a tower, sitteth not down first,
and counteth the cost, whether
he have sufficient to finish it?
Lest haply, after he hath laid the
