Luke 14:1-11 - Humble Yourself
This passage details the third and final sabbath healing in Luke’s Gospel. It has the feel as if Jesus was being baited by the Pharisees into healing a man with dropsy. Jesus astutely watched the Pharisees as they jockeyed for position at the table for the meal. His response to observing them was to give an admonition to humility. This is hugely important. We spent time in this text and in Philippians 2 as we looked at the importance of humility in the community that is the church, the impact of pride and selfish ambition, and the ultimate source of true humility.
