|Luke 14: 1, 7 - 11
||One sabbath when he went to dine at the house of a ruler who belonged to the Pharisees, they were watching him.
||Now he told a parable to those who were invited, when he marked how they chose the places of honor, saying to them,
||"When you are invited by any one to a marriage feast, do not sit down in a place of honor, lest a more eminent man than you be invited by him;
||and he who invited you both will come and say to you, `Give place to this man,' and then you will begin with shame to take the lowest place.
||But when you are invited, go and sit in the lowest place, so that when your host comes he may say to you, `Friend, go up higher'; then you will be honored in the presence of all who sit at table with you.
||For every one who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted."
