Welcome to our website!
This Sunday we will continue our series on the parables of Jesus. In Matthew 22:1-14 Jesus told a parable about some people who lost something they had in their grasp. It was a parable about a king who had invited them to a banquet for his son. The invitations were theirs, the opportunity was in their hand, but they either ignored it or frittered it away and the benefit was given to someone else.
With the parable, Jesus was trying to warn the Jewish leaders that they were about to lose out on the benefits of the kingdom of God. But they refused to listen and suffered the consequences of that loss. This parable is also a warning to all of us to not presume on the good graces of God for the benefits he offers us in our own lives as well.
