Don’t Push Yourself to the Front

Have you ever forced yourself to the front only to be pushed to the back?

I wonder how many people in the front were invited and how many pushed their way up?

We’re wired to want to be seen. After all, if we spend a lifetime struggling, shouldn’t we expect a position, a trophy, or our story in the news?

Proverbs 25:6-7 teaches, “Don’t demand an audience with the king or push for a place among the great. It’s better to wait for an invitation to the head table than to be sent away in public disgrace.

Our worth isn’t measured by where we sit. Sit in the seat with your name on it, whether in the front, back, or middle. Enjoy the people at your table.
