Verse of the Day, March 5, 2021
Luke 14:11 KJV “For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.”
A parable today for those who desire the chief rooms and chief things. When we are invited to a wedding or event, do not place ourselves among the highest room. A more honorable man may come who was also invited and we may be asked to give our seat to such.
We will feel embarrassed and small when we have to go to a table further in the back. When we’re invited, we are to seat ourselves at the lowest tables of the event, in the far back. This way we may be promoted and ushered to come to sit at the highest tables.
The plain message is that whoever exalts themselves will be abased or humbled. The polar opposite is also true; whoever humbles themselves will be exalted. Take ye the wisdom and praise ye the LORD.
Praise the Most-High today!

Luke 14 King James Version
5 And answered them, saying, Which of you shall have an ass or an ox fallen into a pit, and will not straightway pull him out on the sabbath day?
6 And they could not answer him again to these things.
7 And he put forth a parable to those which were bidden, when he marked how they chose out the chief rooms; saying unto them.
8 When thou art bidden of any man to a wedding, sit not down in the highest room; lest a more honourable man than thou be bidden of him;
9 And he that bade thee and him come and say to thee, Give this man place; and thou begin with shame to take the lowest room.
10 But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room; that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit at meat with thee.
11 For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
12 Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours; lest they also bid thee again, and a recompence be made thee.
13 But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind:
14 And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.
15 And when one of them that sat at meat with him heard these things, he said unto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God.
