Gospel – Luke 14:1,7-11
“…For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and the man who humbles himself will be exalted.’” We will be thinking how are we exalting ourselves? I exalt myself in all those moments in which I pretend to be something more than what I am. I exalt myself in all those moments in which I associate with someone who is in power, or I want to be friends with people in power, for my selfish reasons. I exalt myself in all those moments in which I search for banners or slogans to project myself. All these moments you are acting contrary to the gospel because you are acting contrary to God who wants that you be yourself. That is why you get humbled. On the contrary when you are humble and accept and be what you are, God takes control of your life and will be exalted.
