“Lord, I accept your invitation”
Matthew 22: 1-14
Lord, If I had to audition for a role in this parable, what part would I play?
Am I the slighted king? Sometimes I feel like my efforts for my loved ones are unappreciated and unappreciated. Lord, help me to release any bitterness I feel and use me to serve the marginalized and poor instead.
Am I the beloved son? Do I believe that the Father lavishes all of his kingdom’s goodness upon me and trusts that He has prepared a banquet for me despite how bleak things may seem at this time?
Am I among the servants who have been dispatched to evangelize through love, work and prayer to lead souls to Christ?
Am I among the specially invited guests who delayed conversion because of comfort, riches, fear and distractions?
Or am I the one without the wedding garments of grace and purity?
Lord, you sit on high and yet you’re looking for those to attend your feast. I accept your invitation whatever my role, please purify me and use me as you wish.
