God has given each of you some special abilities; be sure to use them to help each other, passing on to others God’s many kinds of blessings.
1 Peter 4:10 TLB
Those who welcome you are welcoming me. And when they welcome me they are welcoming God who sent me.
Matthew 10:40 TLB
It's not just about using our gifts to help others.
It's about making room, intentionally leaving space, being dedicated to hospitality.
Dad's car didn't fit in the garage by accident. Dad thought ahead and made provision for his "guest".
The natives showed extraordinary kindness, for they kindled a fire and welcomed us all, because of the rain and the cold.
Acts 28:2 MEV
Pardon my analogy, Dear Reader, but does your garage/life seemingly get too full for others at times? Do we get so busy that we forget to intentionally leave space for others? I know I do!
Share what you have with the saints, so they lack nothing; take every opportunity to open your life and home to others.
Romans 12:13 VOICE
Somehow none of that matters when friends or family come over. Thanks to Dad, I learned that no matter what's going on in the garage, there's always time and space for those we love.
