Who are you working for?

In today's gospel Jesus tells us that he wants to hire us. Jesus is looking for men and women to work for him full time, and he has an incredible retirement package, HEAVEN. Remember that the purpose of your life is to be with God forever in heaven. I know the plans I have for you, plans for good, not for bad. This is why you exist, why you were created; to know God, to love God, to serve God so you can be happy with him forever in heaven. If you pray everyday from your heart then you will go to heaven. So this day say a little prayer. My Lord Jesus help me, my family and my loved ones to get to heaven. I choose to follow you Jesus for I believe that you are the Way, the Truth and the Light. May the joy of salvation fill your heart this day.

 

 

Gospel

Matthew 22:1-14

And Jesus answering, spoke again in parables to them, saying:

The kingdom of heaven is likened to a king, who made a marriage for his son.

And he sent his servants, to call them that were invited to the marriage; and they would not come.

Again he sent other servants, saying: Tell them that were invited, Behold, I have prepared my dinner; my calves and fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come ye to the marriage.

But they neglected, and went their own ways, one to his farm, and another to his merchandise.

And the rest laid hands on his servants, and having treated them contumeliously, put them to death.

But when the king had heard of it, he was angry, and sending his armies, he destroyed those murderers, and burnt their city.

Then he saith to his servants: The marriage indeed is ready; but they that were invited were not worthy.

Go ye therefore into the highways; and as many as you shall find, call to the marriage.

10 And his servants going forth into the ways, gathered together all that they found, both bad and good: and the marriage was filled with guests.

11 And the king went in to see the guests: and he saw there a man who had not on a wedding garment.

12 And he saith to him: Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? But he was silent.

13 Then the king said to the waiters: Bind his hands and feet, and cast him into the exterior darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

14 For many are called, but few are chosen.
