The king’s instructions to invite people off the street obviously represent how God reaches out to everyone.
How the people respond to that invitation is something we should carefully consider.
How do we respond to the Lord? Have we turned away from God and ignored the promptings of the Spirit within us? Do we react angrily to those who bring forward the teaching of the Church to challenge our beliefs or the way we live our lives? Do we really think we don’t have to change?
The Lord is inviting us. We must respond and continue to change, to grow, and to pass on the invitation.
