An Open Invitation

When Jesus invited Matthew to follow, he was making it clear that this is an invitation extended not solely to the religious elite, the morally upright, and those who have their lives together.  But it is an invitation to all of us who are hiding some stains.  Jesus throws out the elitist application process and gives an open invitation.
