PEW SHEET 10th September 2017


SEPTEMBER THE MONTH OF HOSPITALITY


St Paul reminds us that we are not to conform to this world but seek to discern the will of God. Often when we receive an invitation to the home of others we ask; ‘What can I bring?’ Or we might decide that such an invitation demands an invitation to our house next time. That is the way our society works. We are in a constant state of repaying people for their hospitability. As Christians we can demonstrate our desire to live disciples by not expecting such repayment. We give because we are confident that God will provide. We give because we have already received more than we can ever repay to God. Generosity is right up there with hospitality. In a parable Jesus’ reminds us that; ‘Just as we did it to the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’ (Matthew 25:40)

Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it. (Hebrews 13:2)
