Scripture

Luke 14

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What did Jesus teach about humility (8-11)? What is the meaning of the Parable of the Banquet?

Application

Am I exalting myself or humbling myself? Am I thankful that God chose to invite the spiritually poor, maimed, blind, and lame into His kingdom?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Lord, May I humble myself so that You will not have to humble me. Thank You for inviting people like me, who were spiritually poor, maimed, blind, and lame into Your kingdom. Strengthen me to bear my own cross and come after Christ Jesus. Amen!

Pray to BLESS!
One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)
