How many different ways can you show love to someone? Well, during the holiday season we show love by giving lavish gifts, or inviting others over for a fabulous meal. There are others that give money or make travel plans, and others simply enjoy time off “work”.
I get excited when I hear that people go through transitions during holiday seasons. Babies are born, folks get engaged or married and others leave us to go live in heaven. My mom moved to heaven on the Monday after Thanksgiving in 1999 and I love her for that…
Now, let us talk about hospitality during the holiday season. Now THAT can be a challenge for some families! Not only do you have to cook for the multitudes, but in some cases you need to clean up and decorate your guest room to accommodate out of town guests. Money needs to be spent, arrangements need to be made and grumbling can be heard. “Why do I have to give up my room to Uncle Charlie?” “It’s too hot to sleep on the porch!” “Your flight arrives at WHAT time?!” The complaints can be heard far and wide!
This may be a stretch for some of you but what about those women that give up their babies to another family during the holidays? That must be an incredible feeling… to receive a new member of your family from a “perfect stranger”? WOW! What an amazing gift of love! I know that my eldest daughter was born a week before Thanksgiving in 1990 and MAN we had a lot to be grateful for that year! WOW!
I love God, and I really mean what I say. He gave us an entire book of love and called it The Bible. It’s filled with instructions for our lives to make our time on Earth easier to bear. God’s book is filled with true love stories – like the story that tells us that he sent His ONLY son to be born, to live and to die for US! I wouldn’t give ANY of my children to ANYONE else for ANY REASON! I mean, I appreciate my fellow man but YOU CAN’T HAVE MY CHILDREN! Hmmph God loved us more than I can imagine, and He sent His only son for us. That’s love.
God also taught us how to show love to others! His word teaches us in
1 Peter 4:9-10 ESV – Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace:
Hebrews 13:2 ESV – Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
1 Corinthians 13:8 ESV – Love never ends…
Love and Hospitality go hand-in-hand during the holidays. Don’t forget that friend or neighbor that showed you love in the past? They could have been an Angel! Now, go be an Angel to someone else this holiday season and show them your hospitality. Be grateful for your life, your health, your family and for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ that was born, lived, died and was resurrected JUST FOR YOU!
