People's Commentary (NT)
Luke 14:7-11 Put forth a parable. In this case a spiritual meaning lies under the social instruction. Chose out the chief rooms. The places of honor at the table. Certain seats were considered the most honorable. The Savior's instruction insists upon humility. The spiritual lesson is that one must not, like Diotrephes, seek the pre-eminence (see III John 1:9), but be content to work in lowly places, from whence he can be invited higher if his merits so demand.
