There once was a man of great report living in an isolated village. Everyone held him in high regard. They tipped their hats as they walked past. The man spoke to each a kind and friendly word and always invited each and every one to come to visit him. Everyone was always invited for dinner at the gentle man’s house.
Of course few took him up on the offer. They were busy. They didn’t see the need. It didn’t sound like an entertaining way to spend an evening. There were a few who did go and once they did, they visited frequently. His stories were amazing. His wisdom solved all of their problems.
They would tell others and some would believe them and join them at the table, but most couldn’t believe that an ancient man could be so full of life.
What did they miss by not believing? They never knew the truth of who he was.
Why didn’t they go? They were busy and didn’t see the need.
“Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends. Revelation 3:20
