    Waiting to be invited into the feast………..

    "Go out to the roads and the country lanes and make them come in, so that my house will be full. I tell you, not one of those men who were invited will get a taste of my banquet." Luke 14:23

      They won't be invited to the feast, They were the ones who were invited but had their own affairs to attend to.

      But the feast was prepared and waiting.

      …Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind.

      22 And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.

      23 And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.

      24 For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.
      (That is, not the sons and daughters of the wealthy and supercilious.)


      And I say unto you Labour and lefties, we are many and needy, and there is opportunity for us all to be fed and housed, without even resorting to miracles such as inflating loaves and fishes. Open your houses and minds, to those wishing to work both for their own good and to bring that same good to all the multitude of needy people who struggle, and also to others who need a chance to rehabilitate themselves.

        Thanks for your edit, greywarshark.

        My unkind side was going to say that these four wayfaring strangers were the ones to be invited in after " the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind."

        The kind side says that I hope these four did accept the invite as that would mean they had a change of heart away from seeking only worldly things and getting their priorities right as to what is important.

    All wrong, they're doing a scoping exercise looking for succulent dairy farms which could be up for grabs from interests operating on leverage financing but affected badly from slow-ups affecting supply and demand because of the Covid-19 epidemic.

    One of these things is not like the others
    One of these things just doesn't belong
    Can you tell which thing is not like the others
    By the time I finish my song?

    If you guessed the thing second from the left you are absolutely right. That thing has already been tried as National Party leader. The other 3 things will be tried as leader to replace Todd Muller after the next election.
