Passage: Luke 18:9–18:14
The internet is full of videos of young men and women trying to impress someone by standing in front of an ultra-expensive sports car. Inevitably, the video captures the true owner walking up and the “unsuspecting couple” asking him or her to take their photo in front of the car. The owner’s reaction is the punch line of the video and reminds all of us to be careful not to think of or present ourselves in a boastful way. Jesus taught this same lesson repeatedly. The least shall be the greatest; the humble will be exalted.
