You are too funny! You make me sound like a combination between the Motel 6 guy ("We'll leave the light on.") and Oprah with all her philathropy. Maybe you need to get out a bit more, at least to the other side of the island.
And about Diotrephes...
5 My dear friend, you are so faithful in the work you do for other Christians, even when they are strangers. 6 They have spoken to the church here about your love. Please help them to continue their trip in a way that will please God.
3 John 1: 5-6 GNT
Your encouraging words make me humble, dear friend. I impatiently await your visit. In the meantime, I'll "leave the light on" for you. LOL
Your devoted "child" and friend,
Oh, I love the planning and prep (okay, maybe not cleaning all the bathrooms, TWICE!). And when all of the guests are in the house, I've finally learned to let go of the kitchen and just enjoy the folks who are blessing our home.
But really, Dear Reader, who likes the clean-up after everyone goes home? Be honest.
Be [a]hospitable to one another without complaint.
1 Peter 4:9 AMP
Messes like someone spilling a glass of colored beverage on the newly shampooed carpet. A guest's little girl pukes in your spotless bathroom (actually happened, but my friend cleaned every bit up without even asking for help). A careless word is spoken, or an invitation via standard mail is never received.
When I really dig into Peter's exhortation, it's a command that doesn't come with guarantees or accolades. Perhaps hospitality isn't about us or our guests. Maybe it's about obedience; obedience full of opportunities to bless and be blessed.
