Reading: Luke 14:10-11 (NLT)

When we are open in humility and generosity, we learn truths that cannot be found anywhere else. We become more fully human.

Jean Vanier: When we are open in humility and generosity, we learn truths that cannot be found anywhere else. We become more fully human.

“Instead, take the lowest place at the foot of the table. Then when your host sees you, he will come and say, ‘Friend, we have a better place for you!’ Then you will be honored in front of all the other guests. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”

Prayer

O King and Savior, what is Your gift to me? And do I use it to Your pleasing?

‘I have prepared a place for you.’ says the Lord, ‘that is for you, and only you, to fill. First of all, come to My table, and ask that you might serve, looking even for the lowest tasks. When the work is done, then you may look for your own place at table. But do not seek the most important place in case it is reserved for someone else. The place I have appointed is where you will be happiest.

Lord, show me the right seat; find me the fitting task; give me the willing heart.

“1 Chronicles 29:11” – Hillsong

Blessing

May the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ go with you, wherever He may send you. May He guide you through the wilderness, protect you through the storm. May He bring you home rejoicing at the wonders He has shown you. May He bring you home rejoicing once again into our doors.

+ In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen!
