Luke 14:1-14 (KJV)
 And it came to pass, as he went into
the house of one of the chief Pharisees
to eat bread on the sabbath day,
that they watched him.
 And, behold, there was a certain
man before him which had the dropsy.
 And Jesus answering spake unto the
lawyers and Pharisees, saying, Is it
lawful to heal on the sabbath day?
 And they held their peace. And he
took him, and healed him, and let him go;
 And answered them, saying, Which of
you shall have an ass or an ox fallen
into a pit, and will not straightway
pull him out on the sabbath day?
 And they could not answer him
again to these things.
 And he put forth a parable to those
which were bidden, when he marked how they
chose out the chief rooms; saying unto them.
 When thou art bidden of any man to a
wedding, sit not down in the highest room;
lest a more honourable man than thou
be bidden of him;
 And he that bade thee and him come and
say to thee, Give this man place; and thou
begin with shame to take the lowest room.
 But when thou art bidden, go and sit
down in the lowest room; that when he that
bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend,
go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in
the presence of them that sit at meat with thee.
 For whosoever exalteth himself shall be
abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
 Then said he also to him that bade him,
When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call
not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy
kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours; lest they also
bid thee again, and a recompence be made thee.
 But when thou makest a feast, call the
poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind:
 And thou shalt be blessed; for they
cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be
recompensed at the resurrection of the just.
May God's healing and blessings abound
to you, your family and friends!
