The people walk upon their heads, The sea is made of sand, The children go to school by night, In Topsy-Turvy Land. The front-door step is at the back, You’re walking when you stand, You wear your hat upon your feet, In Topsy-Turvy Land.

Everything is upside down and back to front these past few weeks. Have you been following the train of thought in the Gospel readings? First we had Jesus talking about how he has come to bring division, rather than peace. Next we heard him tell people that the first will be last, and the last first.

Today, he returns our expectations on their head once again, this time offering a lesson in humility. We should not ‘exalt’ ourselves or take the place of honour among our friends and acquaintances; rather we should ‘humble’ ourselves and take the lowest place. When we throw a party, we ought to invite those in need rather than our friends, family, or rich, influential people - because we should expect nothing in return for kindness or generosity.

Jesus seems to enjoy a ‘topsy-turvy’ approach to life. Following him means thinking differently from the rest of the world - wearing our hat on our feet, so to speak!
