Theme:Receive Gifts from God

The Practice of Hospitality

Scripture:Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. (1 Peter 4:9)

Play:Describe the different rooms in a nice hotel. Don’t forget kitchens and restaurants, suites, lounges, laundry rooms — even pools and gift shops. Discuss the many things that are continually happening at a hotel.

Talk:Despite all the different things that go on at a fancy hotel, they’re all a part of accomplishing one, central focus: caring for people. Similarly, our homes have a lot of different rooms and a lot of different activities going on. And yet there is one central purpose: providing a place to care for people.

In Romans 12:13, the Bible teaches us to share with those in need and to practice hospitality. And when we open our homes to others — just like a nice hotel cares for guests — we’re practicing hospitality.

Pray:Thank God for the ways in which He cares for you.
