Genesis 18: 1-8 and Genesis 19: 1-3
In these two chapters both Abraham and Lot are visited by God or God's messengers but even before they know who their visitors are they treat them with a great deal of hospitality. Abraham runs to great them, brings them water to bathe their feet, a place to rest and food to eat. Lot did the same as he encouraged the messengers to spend the night at his house, provides them with a meal and even protects them from the townspeople. Both Abraham and Lot call themselves servants to their visitors. And this is all even before they realize who their visitors are.
This teaches us a great lesson in hospitality. Are we able to open our hearts and homes to people who may be in need? Are we able to act as servants to those who need our help? Being God's servant means serving God in the faces of those who we come into contact with every day.
Dear Lord, Help me to be your servant today and bring your love and comfort to all those I come into contact with today.
