“When you are invited by anyone to a wedding feast, do not sit down in the best place, lest one more honorable than you be invited by him; and he who invited you and him come and say to you, ‘Give place to this man,’ and then you begin with shame to take the lowest place.
“But when you are invited, go and sit down in the lowest place, so that when he who invited you comes he may say to you, ‘Friend, go up higher.’ Then you will have glory in the presence of those who sit at the table with you.
– Luke 14:8-10
Self-aggrandizement and self-promotion are not good traits. That which is valued in 21st century western culture, is not valued by Christ in His Kingdom. The lower road is not the easiest to take, but it’s certainly the wisest. Read Philippians 2 … it’s certainly the way of Jesus.
