Luke 14

Scripture:

Luke 14:1-35

Observations:

· Jesus asks specific questions, but the Pharisees and experts did not answer.
· Jesus Heals a man with swollen legs, on the sabbath.
· Jesus talks about Humility.
· There was going to be a big feast.
· Jesus tells a story about a man who throws a feast and no one who he invited came.
· There is a cost to become a disciple.

Application:

I can relate to times where I have wanted to be the star of the show, where I wanted to be acknowledge for all the work I have done, And I am reminded that I need to have Humility. Sometimes the reminder does not come until after I took the spotlight, so I am still learning.

I Like when Jesus says “ when you are invited to a feast don't sit at the seat of honor, instead sit at the foot of the table and wait for the host to come and tell you they have a better place for you, then you will be honored in front of all the other guest” Luke 14:8-10

Prayer:

Dear lord,

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to keep growing in my humility. I pray that you will give me guidance and wisdom when it come to wanting to be the center of attention.

Thank you for the past times where you have been there and helped me through.

Lord, I pray that you will put someone in my life who also struggles with humility so that we can work on this together, and if I am further along in the journey of humility, I pray that you will help me guide them, and teach them, and I know I can only do that with your help.
Amen

Thanks Kristy! I think you put your finger on the heartbeat of this passage - humility. Personally I was challenged to live humbly by serving and taking the good news of the kingdom to the homeless, broken, and foreigner. My prayer is that God open my eyes today to someone I can serve that I might usually overlook.

This is great Kristy!! The one part that struck me was verses 15-24. I feel at times I can have every excuse in the book that I think more important than inviting those to "the great feast". My prayer is that I would continue to ask God to make me eternally minded and to see the earthy things as temporary. Also to help me prioritize these earthy matters after I've focused on meeting and serving Jesus first.

Its such as you learn my mind! You appear
to understand a lot approximately this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
I feel that you can do with some % to pressure the message
house a little bit, but other than that, this is magnificent blog.
A great read. I will definitely be back.
