Monday, April 17th: 2 Samuel 1-2; Luke 14:1-24

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is 2 Samuel 1-2; Luke 14:1-24

S: "For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted." Luke 14:11

O: Jesus often mentions that the first will become last and the last will become first. Jesus put himself last in every situation. He was born in a filthy stable. He lived with bare essentials, allowing God to provide everything He needed. He talked with all the weird people. He ate lunch with tax collectors. He died for sins he didn't even do.

A: Live in a "WWJD" (what would Jesus do) kind of way. Offer to be last, for we know we will get our full reward in heaven.

P: Dear God, thank you for showing us how to live in this world in a way that is different. Help us to put ourselves in last, just like you did. Remind us that we will be rewarded greatly in heaven. Amen.

Tomorrow's Bible In a Year Passage: 2 Samuel 3-5; Luke 14:25-35

Luke 14:10
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 the other guests.

Great advice, but often we don't do this I our daily lives. A good reminder to be humble
