Hospitality

Understood as a spiritual gift, hospitality is the kind of Christian grace that can quiet the storm in any situation and comfort the unrest in any soul. Just think about the people you know who minister in the name of Jesus in this profound manner. They're people you like to be near and have as friends.

It is in the giving that the person with hospitality finds satisfaction. This is an approach that resembles our giving Lord, who indiscriminately offers Himself for our peace and joy. Let those who are gifted in this way know that we are grateful for them. Let those of us who are not so gifted, make every attempt to be this way.

3 John 1:5 (MSG)
5 Dear friend, when you extend hospitality to Christian brothers and sisters, even when they are strangers, you make the faith visible.
