Jesus loved parties,
Weddings, and celebrations.
He loved eating and having amazing spiritual conversations with his friends.
This is one of his important “unwritten” messages –
That we should live our lives joyfully
Like children at a party.
The crucifixion wasn’t his real message –
That was the Romans talking.
Jesus’ own life was filled with joy –
Sending and receiving invitations –
But, for him, weddings
Were always the best.
What if your ability to see “color”
Was contingent upon the presence of God –
Wouldn’t you want to immediately start a search for the Holy?
Or if you weren’t able to take pleasure in “eating”
Without first having the ability to say a heartfelt prayer of thanks –
Wouldn’t you want to start practicing with someone who already knew how to do it?
What if you couldn’t enjoy either “music” or “parties”
Without the active participation of God –
Wouldn’t you want to start sending out advance invitations on a regular basis?
O spoiled ones, you take all God’s gifts
And make life’s riches
How could you!
