Have you ever sat at a table and knew your seat needed to be changed? For many who bear witness to this understand the moment when your seat is not your own. Similar to when your life has taken a turn where you recognize Luke 14:11 in all that you do. For one to humble himself/herself does not take much effort. To step back and allow others to go before them. How often do we see this in politics or in the corporate world? It’s counter to our culture, yet Scripture points out that those who humble themselves will be exalted. What you may ask does this exactly mean? For we know pride comes before the fall, yet to have humility is a virtue that is recognized by many. How does one stay grounded to see the difference? For one, it is always seeing oneself next to the One who carried His Cross. He laid down His life for you and for me. We humble ourselves because He is worthy. For where His reign is Sovereign, so is His divinity. And where His Kingdom is known, those who kneel before Him know His deity. For those who walk with their eyes on Christ, will always see His Kingdom forevermore. And those who walk humbly, will see His ladder exalt those who understand His heart.
Luke 14:11 For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
