Luke 14:1, 7–11

On one occasion when Jesus was going to
the house of a leader of the Pharisees to eat a meal on the sabbath, they were
watching him closely. When he noticed how the guests chose the places of honor,
he told them a parable. “When you are invited by someone to a wedding banquet,
do not sit down at the place of honor, in case someone more distinguished than
you has been invited by your host; and the host who invited both of you may
come and say to you, ‘Give this person your place,’ and then in disgrace you
would start to take the lowest place. But when you are invited, go and sit down
at 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 the
table with you. For all who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who
humble themselves will be exalted.”



•      How difficult it is to practice the
art of humility?

•      Am I
willing to step back a bit and
allow others to be centre stage for a change?
