have you responded? – april 8

Reading Matthew 22, Highlighted Passage: 22:1-14

Jesus seems to revel in telling parables that defy explanation – but maybe that is the point it makes us think. The people in Jesus day thought they earned their rights to the kingdom as a birthright or for keeping the rules. Jesus shatters that idea by suggesting that those at the feast will be good and bad alike who have been brought along unexpectedly.

Do I fall into the same trap? Either being overconfident of my own position or condemning of others? Do I judge others by the same criteria?
