DAY 63: "HUMBLE YOURSELF" (Luke 14:11)- A True Leader Lowers Himself- And Is Merciful in Victory"
DAY 63: "HUMBLE YOURSELF"
Jared led a morning devotional that emphasized the importance of humility and serving others. He cited biblical passages from Luke and Proverbs that suggested humbling oneself leads to exaltation, while striving for recognition often leads to downfall. Jared also stressed the importance of seeking God's will over our own desires and finding spiritual guidance from trusted sources. He highlighted the warning to parents about the importance of active upbringing, avoiding arrogance and pride, and the need for humility, compassion, and mercy.
Take the Lowly Place
7 So He told a parable to those who were invited, when He noted how they chose the best places, saying to them: 8 “When you are invited by anyone to a wedding feast, do not sit down in the best place, lest one more honorable than you be invited by him; 9 and he who invited you and him come and say to you, ‘Give place to this man,’ and then you begin with shame to take the lowest place. 10 But when you are invited, go and sit down in the lowest place, so that when he who invited you comes, he may say to you, ‘Friend, go up higher.’ Then you will have glory in the presence of those who sit at the table with you. 11 For whoever exalts himself will be [a]humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
Other verses mentioned and explained this morning in the devotional. (Proverbs 16:18, Proverbs 25:27-28, 1 Samuel 2:30- 1 Samuel 3:13-14)
