Hebrews 13:2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
A popular man of God was in need of some money to organise a crusade. He prayed to God for supplies and was strongly convicted that God has heard him and has answered. He was at home when an old woman came to ask for water to drink. He instructed his child to use his cup to serve the old woman and she left without saying thank you. Some days later, a young man came asking for the man of God. He handed an envelope to the man of God and said, “the old woman told me to thank you.” When he checked the envelope, it contained the exact amount needed for the crusade. And the Holy Spirit reminded him of the old woman he gave water to.
Abraham through his show of hospitality entertained angels unknowingly. Because he didn’t withhold his meal and everything used to entertain the strangers, they could not withhold information from him. God may have kept the information you need in the hands of your maid like he did for Naaman.
You don’t have to own the world to give. Remember the widow of Zarephath. She shared her ‘supposed to be last meal’ with Elijah and got divine supply for as long as the famine lasted.
The person you are seated with in the public bus might not look like an affluent person but might have the key you need to get to the top in your career.
Be hospitable not because you are expecting to mistakenly meet the need of an angel or because you need a miracle. Do this for the sake of Christ who treats everyone with respect. Treat people kindly because you are named with Christ.
Don’t run people down with your words. Stop washing people’s ego with the way you look at them. Tolerate people, don’t grin at almost every mistake made by your Subordinate.
Everyone you come across in life has a role to play in your life. In like manner, you have a role to play in their lives too. Make the relationship count. Let that stranger remember your kind gesture for as long as he lives.
Muse: A True Disciple of Christ will be hospitable and treat people with respect.
Let us pray: Father, I receive the grace to be kind to everyone.
