Luke 14:11

Jesus said,

"Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted."

God's Word Today

Do you know what it means to exalt yourself? It means to be a braggard. It means to talk like you're important. People don't usually like this kind of talk so they might not like the person who talks this way. They might ignore that person. This is very humbling. Do you what humbling means? It means to know that there are people better than you. so if you act humble and respect others, then they in turn will like you and respect you. This means they will exalt you.

Luke 14:26

“If anyone comes to me without hating his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple.”

What He wants is for you to love Him more, more than your family, more than your friends, more than your own life. Do you love Jesus that much?

God's Word Today

Jesus was explaining to his disciples about how the dishonest man changed his ways when he thought he was going to be punished. He was rewarded because the people he had cheated now liked him again. Jesus warns that this same rule applies in the spiritual world. You are a child of light or a child of God. So you are expected to act in good ways. Just like the steward, if you do something bad and you try to fix it, you will be rewarded in heaven as well.
