“But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing wedding clothes. He asked, ‘How did you get in here without wedding clothes, friend?’ The man was speechless.
“Then the king told the attendants, ‘Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’
“For many are invited, but few are chosen.”
Matthew 22: 11 – 14
It is good to be ready when we go places. It is good to be prepared, and make sure we have the right things. One thing we can always know we have no matter where we go is the grace and love of God. We are offered this, and called to believe in this gift of grace and forgiveness. This passage is calling all people to believe, to come to God ready to receive this gift of grace.
Prayer: Loving God, you call all people to believe, to come to you with open arms, ready to receive your love and forgiveness. May we hear this call, embrace it, and live out our lives as faithful disciples. Amen.
Action: Remind yourself of God’s grace and love for you.
