Be ready to show kindness & give hospitality

I love the exhortations in these verses: We are called to show kindness and hospitality. Dad and I are really seeing and experiencing this while we are in Montana this week.

Never underestimate the power of a kind word which can be used by God for good. Few things are as basic as sharing a meal with someone or opening up your home to them. When we share our lives and listen to each other, we can become open vessels for the Lord’s blessings.

I pray God will make us all vessels to show his kindness and love to others.

Romans 12:8

“If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly.”
