258. I cannot come to the banquet

A Rich man once gave a big banquet, and invited many people; and at the time for the banquet he sent his servant to say to those who had been invited, ‘Come; The banquet is now ready.’ But they all alike began to make excuses.

Then the householder in anger said to his servant, ‘Go out quickly to the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in the poor ,mute, blind and lame.’ And the servant said, ‘Sir, what you commanded has been done, and still there is room.’ And the master said to the servant, ‘Go out to the highways and hedges, and compel people to come in, that my house may be filled. For I tell you, none of those men who were invited shall taste my banquet.’
- Taken from the Gospel of Luke.

We are living in a world full of sin, hatred,lust and Greed. It is very difficult for us to be pure in such a world filled with all forms of vices. Falling for the vices is very easy. But staying away from it , indeed needs great mental strength and faith in oneself as well as faith in God.Every good deed has its final virtue. A Good man always finds his Peace.Let us keep ourselves clean

MICHTAM ( A christian Gospel group- It includes the author of the blog, His mom, His sister and her hubby) presents the song

"I cannot come to the Banquet".

The lyrics of the song is added here
1)A certain man held a feast on his fine estate in town.
He laid a festive table and wore a wedding gown.
He sent invitations to his neighbours far and wide
but when the meal was ready, each of them replied:

I cannot come to the banquet, I cannot come to the banquet,don't trouble me now.I have married a wife; I have bought me a cow.I have fields and commitments that cost a pretty sum.Pray, hold me excused, I cannot come.

2)The master rose up in anger, called his servant by name,said:
"Go into the town, fetch the blind and the lame,
fetch the peasant and the pauper, for this I have willed,
my banquet seem so crowded, and my table must be filled.

3)When all the poor had assembled, there was still room to spare,
so the master demanded: "Go search every where,
to the highways and the byways and force them to come in.
My table must be filled before the banquet can begin.

4)Now God has written a lesson for the rest of the mankind;
If we're slow a responding, he may leave us behind.
He's preparing a banquet for that great and glorious day
when the Lord and Master calls us, be certain not to say:

  27. A beautiful thought! Yes, it takes a lot to stay away from the vices, but once you do, the sort of satisfaction you get of not having succumbed is just great! It makes you feel so much better, so self-confident! And I have a suggestion, ask you mum to model for Olay, she looks younger than Ms. Sen! Way to go aunty! :)
