Simple lessons today, because they are reminders of what has come before!
We should show mercy and be compassionate at all times (14:1-5).
Don’t try to make yourself out to be better than you are. Show humility, and someone else may end up exalting you (14:6-11). This lesson is particularly important from a spiritual standpoint. If we are humble and recognize our need, Jesus is the one who lifts us up and gives us a home in heaven!
Finally, we should not just minister to those who can minister back. We should try to help those who can’t repay us. We should be looking for heavenly rewards, not earthly ones (14:12-14)!
