Not Good or Glorious

It is not good to eat much honey, nor is it glorious to seek one’s own glory. Proverbs 25:27

collection: Sweet Autumn Day by DitaB Designs

related:

Now he told a parable to those who were invited, when he noticed how they chose the places of honor, saying to them, “When you are invited by someone to a wedding feast, do not sit down in a place of honor, lest someone more distinguished than you be invited by him, and he who invited you both will come and say to you, ‘Give your place to this person,’ and then you will begin with shame to take the lowest place. But when you are invited, go and sit in the lowest place, so that when your host comes he may say to you, ‘Friend, move up higher.’ Then you will be honored in the presence of all who sit at table with you. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” Luke 14:7-11

Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; a stranger, and not your own lips. Proverbs 27:2
