Luke 14:1-14 – Best seat in the house



            Awkward social situations



What happens when you are full of compassion? (14:1-6)


            You lack compassion






            I’m full of compassion






What happens when you are full of pride? (14:7-14)


            Don’t be a proud guest (v7-11)




            Don’t be a proud host (v12-14)





 What stops us showing hospitality?

            Too scary


            Too costly


            Too busy




Questions: What are your habits when it comes to practising hospitality? How can we make sure we are loving people not using people? Why is it so important that we grow in compassion? How does compassion affect our practice of hospitality? What will help us rid ourselves of the ‘what-can-I-get-out-of-it-mentality’? What barriers are potentially getting in the way of you practicing hospitality as Jesus would have you do it?
