Your home is the perfect place to open your doors and your heart and devote some time and energy to helping others. Here are a few things you can do: ~Assist people who are hurting . ~Help a busy mom out with her kids . ~Befriend and mentor a student. - Elizabeth George, A Woman's Daily Walk With God
I love what author Elisabeth Elliot said, “A sloppy life speaks of a sloppy faith.” We’re careful in our faith…careful to tend to our spiritual growth, careful to obey God’s Word, and careful to maintain the spiritual disciplines of prayer, worship, and giving. So why shouldn’t we also be careful of how we manage our homes? That’s not a put-down. Far from it! Creating a safe and comfortable place for your family and yourself is a privilege and significant accomplishment. –Elizabeth George
There is no Biblical mandate that offering hospitality is to be done weekly, monthly, or every holiday — rather, we are to be actively PURSUING it. We are to be like Abraham and Lot, chasing down opportunities to open our hearts and homes to others.
Change can either be good or bad. You can either slip back into old ways, habits, actions, and attitudes ... or you can create new ones. Today is a new day with new challenges. Let the Holy Spirit invade your heart & soul so the spiritual tone in your home glorifies God and blesses your family!
Historically, the Christian home has been used to minister not only to family but also to strangers. Amazingly, it's our privilege to extend love to outsiders as we welcome them in our home. #HomeIsWhereTheHeartIs
