A Godly woman shows hospitality

God views the act of hospitality as precious, and He praises women of the Bible for their welcoming spirit (such as Lydia in Acts 16).

Hospitality doesn’t have to be complicated. An invitation for coffee and a chat is just as meaningful as a 4-course dinner. When it comes to hospitality, less is more – connection is what counts.

Remember 1 Peter 4:9 which says, “Use hospitality one to another without grudging.” I think one of the biggest reasons we are tempted to grumble is our high standards — we think that unless our home is picture-perfect, it’s embarrassing to invite guests.

So, in turn, we get overwhelmed every time we invite someone into our home. It’s helpful to remember that no home is perfect, and people won’t remember the state of the home nearly as much as the people in it.
