“For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
– Luke 14:11
I’ve never met a person who enjoys being humbled. We all have “that story.” You know, the one where you basically fell flat on your face and were totally embarrassed? Yeah, you were humbled. No one likes that, but there is not a person alive that doesn’t like to be honored.
Jesus gives us the simple algorithm for exaltation. But it requires the very thing we have an aversion to. If you humble yourself, you will be one day exalted.
