Matthew 22:5 – Are you saying yes to work and no to God?

Join us in the Project 345 reading plan as we read through the New Testament.

Note: We are back from our London mission trip.  Thank you to all who were praying.  We saw incredible things: conversion, growth, and clarification of calling… life transformation.

Context::  This is the beginning of the parable of the wedding feast: “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a wedding feast for his son, and sent his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding feast, but they would not come. Again he sent other servants, saying, ‘Tell those who are invited, See, I have prepared my dinner, my oxen and my fat calves have been slaughtered, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding feast.'”

Matthew 22:5 “But they paid no attention and went off, one to his farm, another to his business.”

Observations:  The reason those invited to feast with the king did not respond was that they were preoccupied by their work.  It is the only reason given for the rejection.

Application:  I am type A.  Today I want to focus on responding to God first.  I want to enjoy fellowship with Him before my to do list.

Are you saying no to a banquet with the King and choosing “business” instead?
