Don’t Exalt Yourself – Proverbs 25:6-7

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

Proverbs 25:6-7
Do not exalt yourself in the king’s presence, and do not claim a place among great men; it is better for him to say to you, “Come up here,” than for him to humiliate you before a nobleman…

Do these two verses sound familiar? Well, they should. Consider the words of Yashua.

Luke 14:8-11
When someone invites you to a wedding feast, do not take the place of honor, for a person more distinguished than you may have been invited. If so, the host who invited both of you will come and say to you, “Give this man your seat.” Then, humiliated, you will have to take the least important place. But when you are invited, take the lowest place, so that when your host comes, he will say to you, “Friend, move up to a better place.” Then you will be honored in the presence of all your fellow guests. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.

Thus, the words of Micah 6:8. “He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does YHWH require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.
