Judg 9:2 and Luke 14:10 "Resting in the Lowest Place" (April 16)
What do we value, sitting in the place of honor, wanting to be right next to Beth Moore, John Piper, Tim Keller. What if we aren't recognized in this life. I am a nobody. It is my God Who lifts one up and places one under another. Don't sit at the place of honor, don't covet it. Luke 14:10 says: Sit in the lowest place. Can we be content there? Can we rest there? Abimelech counted the cost for himself ~ Judg 9:2 not for the glory of God. This son of Jerubbaal promoted himself, hired reckless warriors, killed 70 brothers. God returned the evil of Abimelech. God takes notice of every price we pay. Letting go of those things that count only on earth.
