Daily Word Of God

Matthew 22:1-7a, 8-10

Jesus said to the chief priests and elders of the people: ‘The kingdom of Heaven may be compared to a king who gave a feast for his son’s wedding.

He sent his servants to call those who had been invited, but they would not come.

Next he sent some more servants with the words, “Tell those who have been invited: Look, my banquet is all prepared, my oxen and fattened cattle have been slaughtered, everything is ready. Come to the wedding.”

But they were not interested: one went off to his farm, another to his business, and the rest seized his servants, maltreated them and killed them.

‘The king was furious. Then he said to his servants, “The wedding is ready; but as those who were invited proved to be unworthy, go to the main crossroads and invite everyone you can find to come to the wedding.” So these servants went out onto the roads and collected together everyone they could find, bad and good alike; and the wedding hall was filled with guests.

‘For many are invited but not all are chosen.’

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • If we are in tune with living our Christian faith more fully, we will surely recognize the many opportunities that our Parish community offers us to grow in God’s Love and Ways.


  • In our family, at our work place, or in our leisure we too can find many opportunities to show that our love for God is our only motive and strength in our daily living.


  • Are we conscious of God’s presence and participation in our daily living?  Do we push Him to the background of our lives and take His love for granted?  How does God want you to love Him more personally each day?
