Luke 14:1, 7-14

In conversation with the elders in the village I was told many times that when the first missionaries came to the village a couple of centuries ago, the gospel they preached was already familiar to the native people.  When I hear this gospel, that those who exalt themselves will be humbled and those who humble themselves will be exalted, I think I have an inkling of what they mean and I am grateful to have learned this gospel from them.
