Song of Solomon 2:4- He has taken me to his banquet hall, and his banner over me was love....
This morning has been one of those Saturdays where things move a little slower. And while I am wishing I would have gotten a little more schoolwork done this morning, I have to admit that I think that's how it's supposed to be. This morning I haven't been able to stop thinking about the way our God invites us all to join him for a great celebration in every moment. I am praying that I am able to allow myself to attend, and bring along others to join in on the party... Blessings this weekend.
From Matthew 22
Parable of the Great Feast
Jesus also told them other parables. He said, “The Kingdom of Heaven can be illustrated by the story of a king who prepared a great wedding feast for his son. When the banquet was ready, he sent his servants to notify those who were invited. But they all refused to come!
“So he sent other servants to tell them, ‘The feast has been prepared. The bulls and fattened cattle have been killed, and everything is ready. Come to the banquet!’ But the guests he had invited ignored them and went their own way, one to his farm, another to his business. Others seized his messengers and insulted them and killed them.
“The king was furious, and he sent out his army to destroy the murderers and burn their town. And he said to his servants, ‘The wedding feast is ready, and the guests I invited aren’t worthy of the honor. Now go out to the street corners and invite everyone you see.’ So the servants brought in everyone they could find, good and bad alike, and the banquet hall was filled with guests.
