Humility is a great word for Christians. But sometimes God practically shoves it down my throat to get my attention.
Help makes it easier for another to do something by offering one’s services or resources. All good things in your life come from God, not luck, and not karma, though reaping what you sow is a scriptural principle.To help is to assist, aid, lend a helping hand. It is a good thing, and therefore from God. I’ve been so blessed by all the help He’s sent to the South Texas and Louisiana Harvey victims.
Though He slay me, yet will I hope in Him, Job 13:15 is one of the verses I’ve been contemplating. There are times when pain bears down, fear carves hard, love disappoints, and life falls apart. Jobs, health, family, church communities, and friends can fail. Like Job, everything seems to be going wrong, and we have no control.
When you think of hospitality and entertaining, what comes to mind? Does the thought excite you or intimidate you?
My mom has the gift of hospitality. Inviting people in and making them feel welcomed and loved comes very naturally to her. Unfortunately, I did not inherit this ability.
The idea of bringing people into my own home intimidates me. My house isn’t clean enough; my silverware doesn’t match; and my decorating is quite eclectic, too.
