looking for ways to serve
what Jesus says today makes total sense. if you go to a banquet and you expect to be treated with honor, then any little slight will set you off. if you go humbly, looking for ways to help, then any honor you receive will be welcome.
this is true in our non-banquet lives, too. if i go through my day looking for people to treat me with respect, then i will undoubtedly find someone who doesn't, and will get mad.
but if i go through my day looking for people to help, like Jesus talks about in the Gospel, then i will be happy with any respect shown to me in this life, and according to Jesus, will receive a reward in heaven.
God, please remind me to look for humble ways of helping others throughout my day.
