“Moving up by Moving Down”

In this parable- Jesus teaches people the importance of humility, and not self-importance. He addresses those who went looking for the places of honor, in order to appear favored in front of others. His teaching points to his very incarnation- the fact that he made himself nothing, instead taking the form of a servant.(Philippians 2:8-9) Our very salvation is dependent on our Savior’s humbler nature.
