Proper 17 (22) 2016 – Luke 14:8-9

Monday, August 22, 2016

The lectionary selections for this week include: Jeremiah 2:4-13 and Psalm 81:1, 10-16Sirach 10:12-18 or Proverbs 25:6-7 and Psalm 112, Hebrews 13:1-8, 15-16, Luke 14:1, 7-14.

Luke 14:8-9“When you are invited by someone to a wedding banquet, do not sit down at the place of honor, in case someone more distinguished than you has been invited by your host; and the host who invited both of you may come and say to you, ‘Give this person your place,’ and then in disgrace you would start to take the lowest place.”

I think that a part of our faith practice is keeping ourselves and our egos in proper perspective.  To be sure, this can be difficult.  For me, it helps to remember that we are brothers and sisters given life by one God.

Creator God, keep us humble as we work to serve one another today.  Amen.
