Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms. 1 Peter 4:9-10
Some of us think that hospitality is reserved for grandmothers who love to bake pies. Others think it’s just something we’re obligated to do once a year around the holidays when we invite family and friends over for dinner. But none of this comes close to how God defines hospitality.
We have each been given a gift. It may be speaking, teaching, baking, organizing, engineering – you name it, the list is endless. Hospitality is using whatever gift God has given you to help meet the needs of someone else. But hospitality is not just reserved for our family or close friends. If we see a need that we can meet, we have been commanded to meet that need so we can be a part of sharing God’s grace.
There is someone in your life right now who needs to be shown some hospitality. Don’t let your talents go to waste. Instead, remain obedient to God’s command and reach out to them. Commit to faithfully serving others as you seek to offer them your God-given gift.
Dear God, Please help me to understand that hospitality is a 24-hour mindset, and not just about entertaining guests with food. Identify people in my life who need my talents. And allow me to show them your grace by using those talents to meet their needs. In your son Jesus Christ’s name I pray, Amen.
