Adult Forum - 9 am, September 1 - Si Se Puede
Luke 10:29 - 'But wanting to justify himself, he asked Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?"'
When Jesus noticed how the dinner guests chose the places of honor, he told them a parable. Luke 14:7
To no surprise, Jesus’ parable encouraged his listeners to seek a humble place rather than an exalted one. In the age of Facebook, when self-advertisement is often the name of the game, seeking a humble place seems totally old-fashioned, but it was apparently old-fashioned even in Jesus’ time! Jesus invites his listeners, and us, to consider an other-centered view of life.
