6Do not exalt yourself in the king’s presence, and do not claim a place among his great men; 7it is better for him to say to you, “Come up here,” than for him to humiliate you before his nobles.


Jesus made this proverb into a parable (see Luke 14: 7-11). We should not seek honor for ourselves. The better approach is to quietly and faithfully accomplish the work God has given us to do. As others notice the quality of our efforts, they will be drawn to us.

Tyndale. NIV Life Application Study Bible.

As humans we have the tendancy to want everyone to see what WE have done! To see our accomplishments and our good work. But we are told to seek on GOD"S glory and when we do others will notice our efforts and and say "come here, lets show appreciation where its due."

ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and don't be a show and bring glory to yourself instead of our maker! by RICHARD DEAN BROOKS
