Jesus is inviting us all to his party!
In today’s lesson, we’re going to learn about a parable Jesus told to some people. Remember, a parable is a story that teaches an important lesson. Jesus was speaking to a crowd and he told a story about a king who was planning a huge party for his son. It was going to be the party of the year with super cool decorations, games and the best food ever! Who wouldn’t want to go to that party, right? The king told his servants to go out and invite his friends to the party. Some of them said they were too busy. Others were angry that they were being invited and even hurt the servants! One showed up in dirty clothes rather than showering and looking nice for the celebration. Well, the king was furious and told his servants to go invite anyone they could find to come to the party. What’s the point of this story? Jesus told the story to explain that he was the king. Jesus came to save us from our sins. He invites us into a relationship with him. But, some people ignore Jesus, others don’t care about Jesus and get angry, and others don’t really give their heart to Jesus and do whatever they want. Jesus invites us to follow him but he won’t make us do it.
