"When you are invited by someone to a wedding banquet,
do not recline at table in the place of honor…
Rather, when you are invited,
go and take the lowest place
so that when the host comes to you he may say,
'My friend, move up to a higher position.'
Then you will enjoy the esteem of your companions at the table.
For every one who exalts himself will be humbled,
but the one who humbles himself will be exalted."…
Rather, when you hold a banquet,
invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind;
blessed indeed will you be because of their inability to repay you.
For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous."
- Luke 14:1, 7-14
Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I cry to you all the day long.

O Lord, I will be mindful of your justice alone. O God, you have taught me from my youth; even until I am old and gray-headed, do not forsake me, O God.
