Today's Christian clip art: The parable of the wedding feast

Matthew 22:1-14.

Jesus told Pharisees another parable, which was about a wedding feast the King prepared for his son. King sent his servants to inform the guest of the wedding that the feast is ready. But the people invited to the wedding did not care about it and they just went away for their own work. Other invited people hurt the king's servants and killed them. The king was so enraged and destroyed those murderers and burned their cities. Then, the king ordered his servants to bring people from the streets, no matter they were good or bad. The feast was eventually filled with guests. The king noticed a man who was not wearing wedding clothes, he asked this man why, but the man did not answer. The king ordered to tie this man up and throw him out of the feast.

Then Jesus said, "Many are invited but few are chosen".
