Knowing Your Place

Gregory Peck

Gregory Peck

It is reported that the famous actor Gregory Peck was once standing in line with a friend, waiting for a table in a crowded Los Angeles restaurant. They had been waiting for some time. The diners seemed to be taking their time eating, and tables were not opening up very fast. Peck’s friend grew impatient, and he turned to Peck and asked, “Why don’t you tell the maître d’ who you are?”

With great wisdom, Peck responded, “If you have to tell them who you are, then you aren’t.”

That’s good advice to remember.

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.”—Philippians 2:3-4.
