NOVEMBER 3, 2012

Phil 1:18b-26 / Lk 14:1, 7-11

But in any case, whether they are sincere or showing off, Christ is proclaimed and because of this I rejoice and have no regrets. I know that all this will be a grace for me because of your prayers and the help given by the Spirit of Christ. I am hopeful, even certain, that I shall not be ashamed. I feel as assured now, as before, that Christ will be exalted through my person, whether I live or die. For to me, living is for Christ, and dying is even better. But if I am to go on living, I shall be able to enjoy fruitful labor. Which shall I choose? So I feel torn between the two. I desire greatly to leave this life and to be with Christ, which will be better by far, but it is necessary for you that I remain in this life. And because I am convinced of this, I know that I will stay and remain with you for your progress and happiness in the faith. I will surely come to you again, and give you more reason for being proud of belonging to Christ Jesus.

LUKE 14:1, 7-11
One Sabbath Jesus had gone to eat a meal in the house of a leading Pharisee, and he was carefully watched. Jesus then told a parable to the guests, for he had noticed how they tried to take the places of honor. And he said, "When you are invited to a wedding party, do not choose the best seat. It may happen that someone more important than you had been invited; and your host, who invited both of you, will come and say to you, `Please give this person your place.' What shame is yours when you take the lowest seat! Whenever you are invited, go rather to the lowest seat, so that your host may come and say to you, `Friend, you must come up higher.' And this will be a great honor for you in the presence of all the other guests. For whoever makes himself out to be great will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be raised."

The humble person will renounce all the glory of the good he has or does and give it all to God. If there is anything good in him or any good done by him, he is not disposed to glorify himself or boast about it before God. The disposition of the humble person is to wholly submit himself to God. He is content to be subject to the commands and laws of God, for he sees it is right and good that the creature be subject to his creator. He wants to give God the honor that belongs to Him, and that is to reign over him and subject him to certain commandments that are designed for his own best interests.

Humility debilitates an inordinate aspiration to wealth or position, to ambitious behavior among people. A humble person is content with whatever situation God is pleased to assign to him. He is not greedy for honor, nor does he try to appear exalted above his neighbors.
