HUMILITY BRINGS EXALTATION

30th Oct 2021

Jesus said, “when you are invited, go Luke 14:1, 7-11 and sit in the lowest place, so that when your host comes, he may say to you, friend move up higher. Then you will be honored in the presence of all who sit at table with you.”

The point is simple and repeated throughout scripture:

ourselves up, God will put us down. If we lift others up, God will lift us up. How do we cultivate humility in our lives? Think of yourself less often, think of others more often, and think of God most often.

Dear Jesus, grant me the grace to never view myself greater than anyone. Banish all lingering sparks of self-importance that could elevate me greater than you. Let my heart always imitate your humility. Amen.

Rev. Fr. Alexander Mwebembezi
