For many are invited, but few are chosen. Matthew 22:14
Here is another parable about the kingdom of heaven. In the story, we see the king who is celebrating the wedding banquet for his son. Many are invited to the banquet, called to celebrate with the king, but this invitation is rejected and ignored by those who are initially invited. What follows is a description of what happens to those who reject the invitation of God, but also what happens to those who do not arrive to the banquet of the king in a suitable manner.
