Luke 14:7 And he put forth a parable to those which were bidden, when he marked how they chose out the chief rooms; saying unto them,
Luke 14:8 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;
Luke 14:9 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.
The world's way is to seek honor by aggression. By force people exalt themselves and put down others.
Luke 14:10 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.
This is the Lord's way. Seek not to place yourself higher than you should. Honor others above yourself.
Phil 2:4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
Luke 14:11 For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
So true, this is an important scriptural truth. Satan sought to place himself in the place of God and was cast down. Those who seek self glory shall be cast down. Those who humble themselves before the Lord, shall be lifted up. We reap what we sow.
Gal 6:8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
