The Lord’s Prayer Challenge: Day 10 The R.S.V.P.!

Invitations are interesting things!

We receive them joyfully and sometimes dreadfully depending on our relationship status with the sender.

We send them joyfully and sometimes dreadfully depending on who we feel obligated to invite.

Sometimes we receive an invitation and we wonder why in the world we were invited in the first place.

Sometimes we don’t receive an invitation and we wonder why we were excluded.

Sometimes an invitation comes with an unspoken harsh command: “You better be here.”

Sometimes an invitation comes with an unspoken soft message: “We love you so much that we want you here.”

When I pray, “Thy kingdom come . . . ,” it is an invitation for God to present a better way of life on earth.

When I pray, “Thy kingdom come . . .,” it is an invitation for me to present a better way of living to others.

Ultimately it’s the R.S.V.P. that matters!
