Not to Impress, But to Bless
Have you been challenged with some fresh ideas, a new perspective, a renewed resolve as we have chatted about hospitality this month?
I have. (Don't they say that the teacher often learns the most?) In pondering the whys and hows of practicing hospitality, I have been challenged in my own thinking. I have confessed to some of my challenges, and I am going to keep working on overcoming them because...
Hospitality is worth it!
Remember, it's not about me. It's about blessing others.
One more thing...
This series was not intended to make you feel guilty for not entertaining enough. My purpose was not to coerce you into opening your home every week, or month, or year. There is no correct number of times, nor correct number of people, nor correct style of party, nor correct mode of extravagance or simplicity.
My purpose was to make you feel comfortable in opening your home. To remind you that hospitality is directed by God. To help you to see that you can be a blessing to people...in your home, with your style.
(And it doesn't have to be perfect.)
The important thing is to be open to the opportunities to be a blessing that the Lord puts in your path!
