I recently found this blog entry on hospitality over at The Purple Cellar:
Romans 12:13: "Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality" and on 1 Peter 4:9: "Show hospitality to one another without grumbling." Susie says that when seeking to have a hospitable heart, there are four primary things to keep in mind:Please go over and read the entire entry here, it is thought provoking. We can all think about a time when we were welcomed into someone's home for a simple meal, but much love. We should all follow that example.
1) Hospitality isn't based on having the "right" house.2) Hospitality isn't always convenient.
3) Hospitality isn't always comfortable.
4) Hospitality is always about serving others.
Strive to use your time and home to serve the Lord in this important ministry.
