Luke 14:7-11

Williams(i) 7 When He noticed how the guests were picking out the best places, He told them the following story: 8 "When you are invited by anyone to a wedding supper, never take the best place, for someone of greater distinction than you may have been invited, 9 so that your host may not come and say to you, 'Make room for this man'; and then in embarrassment you will proceed to take and keep the lowest place. 10 But when you are invited anywhere, go and take the lowest place, so that when your host comes in, he may say to you, 'My friend, come up to a better place.' Then you will be honored in the presence of all your fellow-guests. 11 For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but whoever humbles himself will be exalted."
