Take The Low Place- Luke14.7

Luke 14:7 When he noticed how the guests picked the places of honor at the table, he told them this parable: 8 “When someone invites you to a wedding feast, do not take the place of honor, for a person more distinguished than you may have been invited. 9 If so, the host who invited both of you will come and say to you, ‘Give this man your seat.’ Then, humiliated, you will have to take the least important place. 10 But when you are invited, take the lowest place, so that when your host comes, he will say to you, ‘Friend, move up to a better place.’ Then you will be honored in the presence of all your fellow guests. 11 For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”

This is one of my all time favorite truths in Scripture. I heard of this truth in college and Leon Tucker and I have spoken of this for all of our years in ministry. It is so powerful

Let’s keep humbling ourselves before God and one another and trust Him for His exaltation in His time and way.
