God fulfills the Law

God Fulfills the Law:  HUMILITY
 
Focus Scriptures: 

Proverbs 25:6-7     Luke 14:1, 7-14

In Proverbs we are encouraged to be humble and not “put ourselves forward” because it is better to be invited up than to be asked to take your proper place. In Luke Jesus uses this proverb to teach his guests at dinner how to be humble when receiving hospitality, and how to be a proper host without expecting payment in return from your guests. At the center of both lessons is the reality that humility leads us on a path toward the fulfillment of God’s law. When we are humble it is easier to act in ways that love both God and our neighbor.

Humble Praise
 

“Praise the Lord! Happy are those who fear the Lord, who greatly delight in his commandments. Their descendants will be mighty in the land; the generation for the upright will be blessed. Wealth and riches are in their houses, and their righteousness endures forever.” Psalm 112:1-3.  When we praise God, we are acknowledging the power and presence of the Holy Spirit at work in our lives. The Law of God becomes a gift through the grace and work of the Spirit bringing wealth that is not of this world. The wealth that comes through the law is grace and mercy. Because the law reveals its necessity in our lives, we can look at its presences as a gift of life and meaning. Prayer: “As I am humbled by your law, turn me toward your love and grace in my life. Amen.”
