A dinner party

You've been invited to a dinner party. In the absence of place cards, where will you decide to sit? At the kids' table at the end? in front of that drafty window? Or do you go for one of the better spots? Jesus was at a dinner party and he saw people saving the best seats for themselves. "Careful," says Jesus, because when it comes to the Kingdom of God, the exalted will be humbled, and the humble exalted. Better start at the bottom and let God lift you up. We look at the story in Luke 14. The perfect picture of humility is that of a little baby -- and this Sunday we will witness the baptism of Alissa Diana Dreise. God is good!
