Prov 30-31; Matt 22; Psalm 89:1-18
The theme of great reversals is accentuated as the shadow of the Cross, the Door to Life, draws ever nearer. Those who considered themselves to be on the inside, hear the creak of the hinge. They have made light of the gracious invitation of the King.
When our lives are full of many things, we too stand in peril of ignoring this invitation. Our hands like that of the Rich young man are full of possessions. Land and business to be done. We scarce pay any attention to how peripheral to our lives God has become. We have reduced him to pithy messages or ‘truths’ and carried on with business as usual, whilst a feast is prepared under our noses.
