He spoke a parable to those who were invited, when he noticed how they chose the best seats, and said to them, “When you are invited by anyone to a marriage feast, don’t sit in the best seat, since perhaps someone more honorable than you might be invited by him, and he who invited both of you would come and tell you, ‘Make room for this person’. Then you would begin, with shame, to take the lowest place. But when you are invited, go and sit in the lowest place, so that when he who invited you comes, he may tell you, ‘Friend, move up higher.’ Then you will be honored in the presence of all who sit at the table with you. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.”
He also said to the one who had invited him, “When you make a dinner or a supper, don’t call your friends, nor your brothers, nor your kinsmen, nor rich neighbors, or perhaps they might also return the favor, and pay you back. But when you make a feast, ask the poor, the maimed, the lame, or the blind; and you will be blessed, because they don’t have the resources to repay you. For you will be repaid in the resurrection of the righteous.” - Jesus Christ
— Luke 14:7–14
How often do we run for the best seat in the auditorium or try to get close to the front so we can get the best views? The Lord says we should always humble ourselves so that we may be welcomed to the front, rather than be looked down upon for taking seats we are not entitled to. This has much more to do than just seats in an auditorium, but all to do with life in general. Set yourself back and build others up. What you aren't paid on earth will be paid to you in Heaven and through the honor one attains by being humble. The name of the game is putting all others ahead of yourself and you will be rewarded.
This parable is two-fold as it also talks about when we invite those to dinner, we should not invite those whom can pay us back, rather those who cannot pay us back. This lesson reaches beyond the dinner table as well and teaches us that when we give to others, make it count and do it without expectation. It is through these acts we gain favor in Heaven and Earth.
