Luke 14:21 So the slave returned and reported to his master. Then the owner of the house became angry and said to his slave, “Go out at once into the streets and lanes of the town and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind, and the lame.”
But what if we see this parable as a story of God in Jesus Christ? Are we the backup wedding guests, gathered from the sin and brokenness of our lives in the street, invited into a heavenly banquet? All that is asked of us in return is to put on our garment of celebration and enjoy the bounty spread before us.
MOVING FORWARD: Read today’s lesson from Luke. What do you think this parable means? Share it with us by using #ForwardDayByDay.
