Hebrews 13:2 “Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.”
🔴 Welcome to Your House!
Usually, when you are welcoming someone to your house, you offer them a seat. For the first time, I witnessed a different group of people at the White House that stood the entire time. It is possible that seating wasn’t offered before; however, it was quite obvious this time.
Are you given to hospitality?
Do you have a welcoming Spirit that people want to be around you?
How comfortable do you try to make others feel that they are different from you?
People sense being tolerated or if in a hostile environment.
What messages are you sending to those entrusted to you?
Is it love, warmth, genuine interest, and kindness?
Are you willing to listen to other people’s concerns even when you think it does not affect you?
Are you your brother’s keeper?
James 2:16 “And one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that?”
As believers made in God’s image, we should want to be more like Him and take on His attributes and His character.
Romans 12:13 “Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.”
When Jesus saw that people were hungry, He fed them; when thirsty, He gave them water to drink.
Matthew 25:37 Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink?
Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. 1 Peter 4:9
