…many are called, but few are chosen. Matthew 22:1-14 After all it was last minute! Nevertheless, to be called to a wedding feast is a privilege and a blessing, definitely something to be excited about. While it’s easy to spend time on the gentleman who was thrown out, I think the parable is more about God’s desire to be in relationship with his people and the wedding feast symbolizes his everlasting commitment to that relationship. One might say that the first group got the formal written invitation while the second group just got a phone call. It doesn’t matter. The one who has hope in such a blessing will always be prepared to go.
