“Hospitality opens the door to uncommon community. It’s no accident that hospitality and hospital come from the same Latin word, for they both lead to the same result: healing. When you open your door to someone, you are sending this message: ‘You matter to me and to God.’ You may think you are saying, ‘Come over for a visit.’ But what your guest hears is, ‘I’m worth the effort.’”
As followers of Jesus, we are called to be hospitable, to be a “hospital” that helps those who are going through life’s storms and need restoration. We can be used by the Lord because He has provided for us. – Marvin Williams
Heavenly Father, make me open to be willing to serve
Others through showing hospitality.
May I provide a safe haven for those going through
The Storms of life. Amen
Christian hospitality is an open heart and an open home.
