“The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son.”

Matthew 22:2

If a king or leader invited us to a banquet and we choose not to go it would probably be because we didn’t like his politics.

The king in the parable after his invitation was turned down, invited everyone else in the kingdom…the nobodies, homeless people, illegal immigrants, the working poor, criminals…anyone his messengers could find on the streets.

This parable speaks to the fact that God has invited each of us to a banquet of abundant life with Him. But it also speaks to the fact that God is not sitting around waiting for us to accept His invitation.

So the question is: Are we going to accept the invitation?


Dear God, thank you for inviting me into your kingdom. I know I’m so preoccupied with my life that I keep putting off your invitation.  I pray that my priorities will be Your priorities. Because, I really do not want to miss Your invitation…I want to be at the banquet for your Son, Jesus. Amen.
