Good morning all,
the word of the day is “convive.” Have you ever been invited to a really nice dinner, like one with more than one course? I have only been a part of a couple of them in my life, but they were always pretty fun. I still never know what fork to use first. Well, in Jesus’ time, he used a lot of different stories to help people understand the message he was trying to convey. The one he told about the banquet party thrown by God himself was one of my favorites to envision.
Jesus replied: “A certain man was preparing a great banquet and invited many guests. At the time of the banquet he sent his servant to tell those who had been invited, ‘Come, for everything is now ready.’ ~Lk 14:16-17
Unfortunately for some, they chose not to be a part of God’s invitation. My question is: are you making room for God in your life in ways that will allow you to make good decisions when he calls you to be a part of his great banquet? Many of us have accepted the invitation, but have stopped there. My prayer is that you live in such a way that you are inviting others to be a part of God’s family and work. What better convive to have than the Almighty God, and those whom we love!
Praying for you,
