Luke 14:7-11

Living_Oracles(i) 7 Observing how eager the guests were to possess the higher places at the table, he gave them this injunction, 8 When you are invited to a wedding, do not occupy the highest place at table, lest one more considerable than you be bidden, 9 and he who invited you both, come and say to you, Give place to this man; and you should then rise with confusion, to take the lowest place. 10 But when you are invited, go to the lowest place, that when he who invited you comes, he may say to you, Friend, go up higher; for that will do you honor before the company. 11 For whoever exalts himself, shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself, shall be exalted.
