Becoming a disciple: Entertaining strangers

Scripture – Hebrews 13:2

Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.

Observation

Entertaining strangers and inviting people into my home is not something I intentionally decide not to do. However, I admit that it rarely happens. I know by not having people I don’t know in my home (no matter how I justify it) is preventing God from using me in every way He’d like to.

Application

I will organize an open house drop in Christmas event (drinks, music, cookies etc) on Friday December 23. I will make small invitation cards and invite everyone in my neighborhood. I will trust God that those he wants to come over will, and those he doesn;t want to won’t. Simple as that. I will just be kind and hospitable to my neighbors.

Prayer

Father, thank you for the reminder tonight. Please help me keep your word fresh in my heart. Please bless those who come round on the 23rd. In Jesus’ name, amen.
