Discussion: the place of honor

The parable of the Place of Honor examines the power of being humble. We as leaders and businesspeople should operate from a place of humility rather than a place of haughtiness. As we think about how we interact with others and how others see us from our interactions, we need to be mindful of how Christ has called us to be humble in our approach to leading and serving. This is difficult at times because many of us are wired to move forward, get things done, and do whatever it takes to be successful. We can still do all these things, but we need to accomplish them through a lens of humility. We should not be people who only try to promote ourselves, but we should be people that work hard, care for others, and do whatever it takes to build healthy and gracious relationships. God has called us to a life of humility, and when we lead, love, and care through humility, we will always do so from a seat of honor through Christ’s strength within us.
