Are you planning to sponsor or hold a supper, banquet, dinner, or party? Or are you planning to go to one? Here is some holy guidance and etiquette from Jesus Christ Himself.
Luke 14:7-147 And he put forth a parable to those which were bidden, when he
marked how they chose out the chief rooms; saying unto them,
8 When thou art bidden of any
man to a wedding, sit not down in the highest room; lest a more
honourable man than thou be bidden of him;
And he that bade thee and him come and say to thee, Give this man
place; and thou begin with shame to take the lowest room.
10 But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the
lowest room; that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend,
go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit at
meat with thee.
11 For whosoever
exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
12 Then said he also to him that bade
him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy
friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours;
lest they also bid thee again, and a recompence be made thee.
13 But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the
maimed, the lame, the blind:
thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be
recompensed at the resurrection of the just.
God says these things because His plan of salvation and living are NOT the same as what we humans think we need to do to be saved from our sin or how to live godly lives.
