Jesus said, “When you are invited by someone to a wedding feast… take the least important place, so that when your host approaches he will say to you, Friend, move up here to a better place”. (Luke 14:8,10)
Being called, “Friend,” is a beautiful greeting to receive.
It would be even more beautiful if the words came from Jesus!
As well as inviting us to be His friend, Jesus was saying, love involves being humble of heart!
Lord Jesus, teach me how to love you so that your light shines on my path and evil finds no place.
Prayer: Psalm 149
Sing a new song to the Lord,
his praise is the assembly of the faithful.
Let Israel rejoice in its Maker,
let Sion’s sons exult in their king.
Let them praise his name with dancing
and make music with timbrel and harp.
For the Lord takes delight in his people.
He crowns the poor with salvation.
Let the faithful rejoice in their glory,
shout for joy and take their rest.
Let the praise of God be on their lips
and a two-edged sword in their hand.
to deal out vengeance to the nations
and punishment on all the peoples;
to bind their kings in chains
and their nobles in fetters of iron;
to carry out the sentence pre-ordained:
this honour is for all his faithful.
