Luke 14

Today we are reading Luke 14. In this chapter we read about Jesus teaching about discipleship. In this passage He focuses on humility.“Now he told a parable to those who were invited, when he noticed how they chose the places of honor, saying to them, “When you are invited by someone to a wedding feast, do not sit down in a place of honor, lest someone more distinguished than you be invited by him, and he who invited you both will come and say to you, ‘Give your place to this person,’ and then you will begin with shame to take the lowest place. But when you are invited, go and sit in the lowest place, so that when your host comes he may say to you, ‘Friend, move up higher.’ Then you will be honored in the presence of all who sit at table with you. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”” Luke‬ ‭14:7-11‬ ‭ESV‬‬ When you read the word “humility”, what comes to mind? Do you think of humiliation? Do you think of gracious self-deference? Throughout the Bible humility is praised by God. Why do you think God loves humility? How do you feel about someone who is humble? Are you in agreement with God? May God give you a humble heart that can be guided and instructed by Him. Pastor Tim
