Responding to God's word without being distracted, giving up when mocked, or being pulled away by the demands of a busy life are challenging for all of us. A relevant and relatable parable.
Jesus welcomes all! His way of looking at people is radically different from the world's and this parable shows his deep love for those who are on the margins of society.
Who should we love? Not just the people we know and like! Once again, Jesus teaches us the value we should put on everyone and how loving others is often sacrificial and uncomfortable.
