|A Passage from Scripture|
The kingdom of heaven is like what happened when a king gave a wedding banquet for his son. The king sent some servants to say to the guests, “The banquet is ready! My cattle and prize calves have all been prepared. Everything is ready. Come to the banquet!” But the guests did not pay any attention. Some of them left for their farms, and some went to their places of business. Then he said to the servants, “It is time for the wedding banquet, and the invited guests don’t deserve to come. Go out to the street corners and tell everyone you meet to come to the banquet.” They went out on the streets and brought in everyone they could find, good and bad alike. And the banquet room was filled with guests.
