ON TOP. . . . . Luke 14:7-11 Jesus advised people not to rush for the best seats at a feast. People today are just as eager to raise their social status, whether by being with the right people, dressing for success, or driving the right car. Wanting a nice car or hoping to be successful in your career is not wrong in itself—it is wrong only when you want these things just to impress others. Whom do you try to impress? Don’t aim for prestige; look for a place to serve. If God wants you to serve on a wider scale, he will invite you to take a higher place.
