How do you pick your seat at a general admission event?
I ask because YESHUA had something to say about it.
Do you want to know what He said?
7 When Yeshua noticed how the guests were choosing for themselves the best seats at the table, he told them this parable:
8 “When you are invited by someone to a wedding feast, don’t sit down in the best seat; because if there is someone more important than you who has been invited,
9 the person who invited both of you might come and say to you, ‘Give this man your place.’ Then you will be humiliated as you go to take the least important place.
10 Instead, when you are invited, go and sit in the least important place; so that when the one who invited you comes, he will say to you, ‘Go on up to a better seat.’ Then you will be honored in front of everyone sitting with you.
11 Because everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but everyone who humbles himself will be exalted.” source
How do you read that?
What do you think He was saying to them?
And is there any reason He would say differently to us?
It’s an important matter.
And if we refuse to humble ourselves — He knows how to do it!
I looked for the specific verse of Scripture to state it just the way I thought it was written and I discovered it’s the Whole Counsel of GOD that would communicate that to us. One of those verses would be this one.
6 Adonai sustains the humble
but brings the wicked down to the ground. Source Psalm 147
Does that say what I think it says?
Wicked is the opposite of humble?
