Hospitality can be defined as the friendly treatment of others or the treating guests in a warm and friendly manner. I Peter 4:9 tells us to “Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling.” Do we ever grumble or complain when asked to share our hospitality?
Romans 12:13 tells us to practice hospitality by sharing with those who are in need. How do we determine who is in need? Are we being judgmental when we try to decide if someone is really in need or not?
I Timothy 5:10 speaks of a woman who is “well known for her good deeds, such as bringing up children, showing hospitality, washing the feet of the Lord’s people, helping those in trouble and devoting herself to all kinds of good deeds.” What a wonderful way to be remembered!
