Daily Walk Devotional

True hospitality is completely other-oriented, seeking to benefit others who are in need.


Excerpt from today’s reading:


Dear friend, you are being faithful to God when you care for the traveling teachers who pass through, even though they are strangers to you. They have told the church here of your loving friendship. Please continue providing for such teachers in a manner that pleases God. For they are traveling for the Lord, and they accept nothing from people who are not believers. So we ourselves should support them so that we can be their partners as they teach the truth. —3 John 1:5-8


Daily insight:


Hospitality speaks volumes about a person’s Christianity. A Christian who practices hospitality is saying in effect, “My house or apartment may not be a showcase on the tour of homes, but God has blessed me with it, and I care enough to share that blessing with you.” Hospitality is other-oriented, for it seeks to benefit others who are in need. To help you practice hospitality, sit down with your calendar, and select one date in the next few weeks when you will share your home with others. Reserve that date, telephone someone you’ve been meaning to invite, and plan your own “Operation Gaius.”
