The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son;
And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
Again he sent other servants, saying, 'Tell those invited: Behold, I have prepared my dinner, my oxen and my fat calves are killed, and all things are ready; come unto the marriage.
They, however, ignoring, were, one to his farm, another to his business;
And the rest seized his servants, treated them shamefully, and killed.
And when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned their city.
Then saith he to his servants, The wedding indeed is ready, but those invited were not worthy.

Matthew 22: 2-8.

Jesus never tired of talking in his kingdom, and compares it to good things, and at the same time draw the attention of those having multiple opportunities to adhere it SO DID NOT and worse insisted on not value it. This is the central theme of this parable of the wedding feast.

Jesus' disciple John says at the beginning of his gospel "came to those who were his own, but his own did not receive him." It is exactly what Jesus tells this parable, as reported above, about a King who had prepared a big party for her son's wedding, was a great feast, with many cattle and other animals ready to be served to your guests, but in last time, they did not give a shit about the wedding of the son of the king, because each chose to go elsewhere instead of estrarem this beautiful and wonderful party, which greatly displeased.

The king in this parable is God our beloved father, the king's son is Jesus Christ, the guests are the first Jews to whom the saving message of Christ was directed.

Here it is clear that with the rejection of the Jews, God is displeased and sends the gospel to be preached to every creature and who believes and is baptized will be saved. Many rich, affluent reject the word of God valuing their petty interests, and so are not worthy of God's forgiveness, and of his kingdom, but those who value it, these will be invited to this big wedding, which is the marriage of Christ with his church that we, those who want to participate in this great party, and we've had our clothes washed in his blood.

When the man return to be with God, to drown in the things of this world, what is left for him is sadness at the end of his life and the removal altogether of the Father, he loves you and wants your well ...
