10/29/2022 (Saturday) Today’s Gospel Reading: Luke 14:1, 7-11

1 On a sabbath Jesus went to dine at the home of one of the leading Pharisees, and the people there were observing him carefully.
7 He told a parable to those who had been invited, noticing how they were choosing the places of honor at the table.
8 “When you are invited by someone to a wedding banquet, do not recline at table in the place of honor. A more distinguished guest than you may have been invited by him,
9 and the host who invited both of you may approach you and say, ‘Give your place to this man,’ and then you would proceed with embarrassment to take the lowest place.
10 Rather, when you are invited, go and take the lowest place so that when the host comes to you he may say, ‘My friend, move up to a higher position.’ Then you will enjoy the esteem of your companions at the table.
11 For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”

  1. It’s interesting that Jesus would tell this parable at a home of someone who has invited him to his home.
    Perhaps Jesus was speaking about himself, being invited, and seated where he was seated as a reflection of where we put Jesus in our own lives. The highest place of honor, or just somewhere in the vicinity.
    Also, the Pharisee represents the believer who has given more of his life to knowledge than the average believer, what is the prospect of where to put Christ in our hearts?
