Do Not Exalt Myself - Prov.25.6-7

Prov.25.6 - Do not exalt yourself in the king’s presence, and do not claim a place among great men; 7 it is better for him to say to you, “Come up here,” than for him to humiliate you before a nobleman."
I have loved this truth and idea since college days. It is so easy to try to "exalt ourselves" before the king and other great men. But the Bible is clear instructing us to wait to be invited. 
How are you approaching life? Are you exalting yourself or waiting for others to say, "Come up here"? I guarantee that waiting to be invited is the way to go in this life. It brings peace, assurance, and joy.
