I've been thinking about hospitality this week.
Open hearts lead to open homes.
That is how one of our daily devotions starts this week. Reaching out to others means we are willing to let people in to our lives, into our homes and even (yikes!) into our schedules. It means we plan for it, hope for it, pray for it.
Now some people are just gifted with hospitality (in fact, hospitality is listed as one of the gifts of the Spirit) and thank goodness for them! They are the ones who always make you feel at home, always important, always expected, always welcome.It seems to come naturally to them.
Then there is the rest of us. The rest of us are 'busy'.
