Manners matter. We’ve all done it, haven’t we? We’ve embarrassed ourselves in a social situation by breaking some mysterious rule of etiquette. At best, people just laughed or frowned at us. Or maybe the faux pas was so serious that you got ejected and excluded. Manners matter.
What about Gospel manners? What are Gospel manners and how do we observe them? In Luke 14:7-24 Jesus writes down three rules of Gospel etiquette to help us avoid spiritual embarrassment, ejection, and exclusion when invited to the Gospel banquet.
