An animation of a story told by Jesus to help his followers understand about God's gifts to his people. The story explains how a king sent invitations to people, inviting them to a banquet. However, none of the guests turned up, and when asked why, they all made excuses. The king decided to invite all the sick and poor people instead - all people were welcome who really wanted to come.

This clip could be used to think about God's power and gifts. Ask the class to share what the best present they have received is. Why was it so good? Who was it from? Did they have to wait a long time for it? Next, ask the children to pretend that they are God and they can give just one gift to the world. What would it be and why?
