"When he noticed how the guests picked the places of honor at the table, he told them this parable: "When someone invites you to a wedding feast, do not take the place of honor, for a person more distinguished than you may have been invited. If so, the host who invited both of you will come and say to you, 'Give this man your seat.' Then, humiliated, you will have to take the least important place. But when you are invited, take the lowest place, so that when your host comes, he will say to you, 'Friend, move up to a better place.' Then you will be honored in the presence of all your fellow guests. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted." Luke 14:7-11
The Painting: Don't know what drove me to pink, but I can only guess subconsciously I knew Tink was coming today. A sweet gentle Chloe is a rescue horse at the Goldwaith Horse Rescue here in Texas.
The Thought: Yesterday Terry and I drove over to ULINE to pick up boxes for packing. I dislike the freeway very much. I always check my iphone for traffic problems before we get on and then with clenched hands I try hard to think of positive things. It seems like every time we are on the entrance ramp to pull out into the first lane, there is solid traffic in that first lane and NO ONE wants to let you in. I remember taking the KY driving test when we moved there twenty years ago and that was a test question. If you are in that lane you adjust your speed slightly to allow a car to merge into the line of traffic. Texas drivers don't honor that. Especially Dallas drivers. They just stare straight ahead and will not slow a tiny bit to allow you to merge.
Occasionally there will be that exception. As you pull down the ramp you see the car coming just at an angle and they are actually slowing down... the driver waves at you to pull on in and you give a sigh and a wave back of thanks. If you are anything like me, you are gleefully honor that gentile driver for his compassion and safe driving.
The same is true for us. God honors us when we seek the best for others and not ourselves. How can you help someone out today?
