Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it. - Hebrews 13:2
Today's verse is fascinating. Because according to the writer of Hebrews, you and I have the chance to entertain angels when we open our homes up to strangers!
But more than opening yourself up to entertaining angels, being hospitable and serving others is a tangible way you can show the love of Christ to those who don't know Him. In fact, Christ commanded that we should love our neighbors as ourselves (see Matt. 22:39).
As you get older, serving and entertaining does become more difficult. But there are still ways you can love your neighbor without exhausting yourself. For instance, doing little things like letting someone merge into your lane in traffic or simply talking to someone who appears lonely. It doesn't take much energy to show someone you love and care about them!
Today, think about ways you can serve and be hospitable towards others. And remember, you just might be serving an angel!
PRAYER CHALLENGE: Ask God to give you creative ways to serve and entertain others who may not know Him.
