Hospitality to Strangers

 Hebrews 13: 1-2

“ Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters. 2 Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without  knowing it.”

There are people that we meet by accident.   Maybe God directed them into our paths.  We do not know them.  But because we said a kind word to them or helped them through a door, or picked up something they dropped, their day was changed for the better.  And maybe because their day was better, they made the day of someone else better. 

Our words and actions toward people that we do not know may not seem to matter to us because we never see the result.  But if we were God and could see the full scope of the things that we have done and said, and the effects they had on other people, we would be astounded… or concerned.  

Keep on loving one another, and, most importantly, be an example of Christ to everyone we meet.

May the love of Christ be with you

Rev. Eric Lanier (Retired)
