I was talking to a friend recently and we were discussing how genuinely sad it is that Christians these days are so prone to avoid being 'given to hospitality' instead of drawn to it. We were wondering if it is something that could be taught, or could be learned and the answer is, "I just don't know." I think it grows on you throughout life and most certainly it would appear in 1 Peter, Chapter 4 that as Christians we should be ready and willing to offering it according to our gifts.
So here's another little blog to toss out to the blog-o-sphere and it serves two purposes:
1. To encourage creativity in myself to practice hospitality; and
2. To encourages others to do the same.
I hope to share and swap ideas as we journey together, hopefully learning what it means to offer hospitality. I think it is an area of the Christian life that is made to sound harder than it really is. In essence, we've made a mountain out of a molehill. So, let's see how we can make it easier on ourselves to use the gifts that God has given us as individuals to benefit and serve those around us, eh?
Meanwhile, I'm just tinkering away on this site and letting my thoughts stew on the subject . . . stay tuned!
