Several times in the past few years I’ve been invited to various parties designed to provide an opportunity for someone to sell me a product. The invitation promises good food and usually a giveaway of prizes. Free stuff – that’s how to draw a crowd.
Except I’m just not interested. I can think of about ten thousand things I would rather do with my time. Expensive makeup and house wares are not high on my list of priorities. It is not a tempting invitation and I feel quite comfortable disregarding it. I’ve just got better things to do.
This is the attitude of those invited to the king’s wedding banquet in Matthew 22:5
