We lived in a small neighborhood on Lake Travis for several years, and we enjoyed having gatherings down by the lake, and parties at our house. The events always seemed to start with very few people there and grow as the afternoon or evening wore on. The trickling arrival of guests would always bother me, and I’d fret that no one was going to come. I eventually got used to the pattern, knowing plenty of guests would show up.
And, He knows some will hesitate to accept His invite, but He also knows those He sent a personal invitation to will eventually arrive. I was one of the stragglers, and I could kick myself for not getting here sooner. It’s an awesome party!
“The Kingdom of Heaven is like a certain king, who made a marriage feast for his son, and sent out his servants to call those who were invited to the marriage feast, but they would not come.” Matthew 22:2-3
