Anyways, I’m finally done with my projects.. with one difficult final staring at me.
Let’s review what I read today:
“Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.” -Heb 13:2
I was SOOO confused on the last part of that verse.. but then Lot and Sodom & Gomorrah came up as the reference! omgosh! the ppl didn’t know that they were dealing with angels when the strangers came!
It really puts a new spin onto the term “welcoming the newcomers” 😉
A philosophy that I have stated, reinstated, and beaten over the head with is this: “The random person that you meet may become the closest companion you ever had.” Now, obviously, we shouldn’t go into the deep end and fantasize deeply about RANDOMLY meeting ur ‘true love’ or any of that cultural junk…
but the point being is this: The person that you may be talking to for the first time.. in a few months,.. he or she could very well become your dear friend.
This philosophy is true for me; for an example, the people I live with.. I never EVER would have even thought that I would be living with them, on the day I first met them. But God is amazing and now here we are!
So, how does this apply, to the verse I just typed up? Well, you never know who the person really is, whenever you chat with someone, and at the moment of talking with her, you never know who the person will become to you. Nevertheless, do not neglect in showing hospitality and have a sober, humble outlook when you meet new people.
It helps to really have an understanding of such things.
