Luke 14:18-20

18 But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said to him, "I have bought a piece of land, and I must go out and see it; please accept my regrets.'
19 Another said, "I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I am going to try them out; please accept my regrets.'
20 Another said, "I have just been married, and therefore I cannot come.'
