DavidHymanWhat is the greatest sin?
David Hyman of Holy Trinity Chatham points out that it is our pride, or lack of humility.
 
Luke 14:1; Luke 14:7-14
Healing of a Man on the Sabbath
 
14 One Sabbath, pwhen he went to dine at the house of a ruler of the Pharisees, they were qwatching him carefully.
 
The Parable of the Wedding Feast
 
7 Now he told a parable to those who were invited, when he noticed vhow they chose the places of honor, saying to them, 8 “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, 9 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. 10 But when you are invited, go and sit in the lowest place, wso 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. 11 For xeveryone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
The Parable of the Great Banquet
 
12 He said also to the man who had invited him, “When you give ya dinner or a banquet, do not invite your friends or your brothers1 or your relatives or rich neighbors, zlest they also invite you in return and you be repaid. 13 But when you give a feast, ainvite bthe poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, 14 and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you. For you will be repaid cat dthe resurrection of the just.”
