Heavenly Father, you know each hair on our head and every thought on our heart. Thank you for hearing our prayers. Thank you for answering so many of them with the answer we sought from you.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (John 1:45-51)
Today’s Gospel Jesus' speak parable contains two stories. The first has to do with the original guests requested to the marriage feast. The king had sent out invitations well in ahead to his subjects, so they would have enough and more time to prepare for coming to the feast. How abusive for the invited guests to then refuse when the time for rejoicing came. They made light of the King's appeal because they put their own interests over his. They not only offended the King but the heir to the throne too. The king's anger is justified because they honestly refused to give the king the respect he was due. Jesus directed this caution to the Jews of his day, both to convey how much God wanted them to distribute in the joy of his kingdom, but also to give a warning about the result of refusing his Son, Jesus.
