Some of the sayings of Jesus on humility seem to raise more questions than they answer. For example, in the parable about taking seats at the table, Jesus suggests that we should not move towards the highest place, lest somebody more important comes along and we will be asked to move lower. Rather, he says, move towards the lowest place so that the host might come and ask us to move higher, and in this way our very humility will be showcased before the other guests.
