welcomed to the feast
called by Christ to faithfulness
robed to do God’s will
The Parable of the Wedding Feast speaks of God’s grace in welcoming outsiders to the table. It also reminds us that guests at the table are responsible to behave in ways that honor the one who has invited them. So the question becomes: how do we honor God with our lives?
Some discussion Questions:
1. What does Jesus mean by disparaging the invited guest who doesn’t wear a wedding robe?
2. When has God been a source of deliverance for me?
3. In considering Philippians 4:1-9, on what would St. Paul have us meditate, to help us continue living as God wishes us to live?
