Judges 11:29-39; Ps. 40; Matthew 22:1-14

With every fibre of my being

In telling the disciples the parable of the king whose invitations were spurned, Jesus shows although it is up to us to choose to accept or decline his Father’s invitations (and there will be more than one), we lose a major opportunity if we don’t. Others will be asked instead. Furthermore, appearing to accept the invitation without really caring one way or the other (like the guest who arrived at the wedding without his wedding garment – an important symbol of the time) isn’t good enough.

Dear God, your presence and action in my life is important to me. May I always, with the help of the Holy Spirit, keep loving you with every fibre of my being.
