Places of Honor

All of today's lectionary readings deal in some way with arrogance and humility, and the human tendency to take the best place at the table, so to speak. This is one of those things that I know in my heart but really need to be reminded of.... sometimes I get in "me-me-me" mode and don't even realize that I'm "taking the best place." Argh!

It's all upside-down.
When we take the best place at
the table, we may
be asked to move to the end.
The humble are exalted:
"Friend, move up higher."
