I read this passage to Layne. As I read it, she interrupted and said, "I wouldn't invite bad people." I told her that is what is so great about God. You don't get invited because you're good enough. We are invited to the feast because we are the highways and byways people. Some people ignore the invitation because they are hostile to it. Others ignore it simply because they are too busy!
The next paragraph states they were trying to trick Jesus. When I read that, Layne said, "Seems like its getting close to Jesus dying on the cross!"
I love the absolute, inescapable yet subtle claim of ownership, "Render to God what is God's!"
