768. Formal Visiting

Luke 10:7
Listen from:
Luke 10:7. In the same house remain....Go not from house to house.
The exhortation to diligence in their work, alluded to in the last note, is repeated in a different form in this text. As salutations are tedious and frequent, so Oriental etiquette requires much visiting from house to house. This consumes time and takes attention from business; hence our Lord commands his disciples not to do it.
