Thursday, April 11th: Joshua 3:1 - 4:24, Luke 14:7-35, Psalm 80:1-19, Proverbs 12:27-28~ Nathan

Luke 14:7-12 NIV
(7) When he noticed how the guests picked the places of honor at the table, he told them this parable:
[8] “When someone invites you to a wedding feast, do not take the place of honor, for a person more distinguished than you may have been invited.
[9] If so, the host who invited both of you will come and say to you, 'Give this person your seat.' Then, humiliated, you will have to take the least important place.
[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.
[11] For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”

On a personal note - would be great to get bumped up to a better seat, and humiliating to get taken to a worst spot.

Jesus taught - to put others ahead of ourselves, to think of others needs before our own.
Reality - may not be rewarded for it here on earth, but will be in Heaven one day, that makes it worth it!

Appreciated the reminder in Joshua that we need to purposefully remember God’s faithfulness to us
