Attitude of Hospitality

“What’s mine really isn’t mine but the Lords.”

The quote listed above was the first thing that was said to me as I entered into the house or Linda Crawford. Linda is a member of the church here in Vinita, Oklahoma where I am currently on campaign. As it turns out, she is one of the most hospitable people I’ve ever met.

You see, the campaign group I’m with arrived here a little bit ahead of schedule. Because of our earliness they didn’t yet have places for the three of us to stay. Without hesitation this lady told the preacher that she would love to house and feed all three of us for the next few days. As we arrived at the house she spoke the above quote to us.

What if we all had this kind of attitude? If we truly believed that the things we had belonged to God and not us, what kind of difference could we make? I truly believe that if we had this same attitude we could make the world a much better place to live in.

This week I want to encourage you to try and be more hospitable. If you see someone with a need, help them with it.

Help someone with their homework at school or help someone with their chores around the house. Help some parents by babysitting their children so they can go on a date. Regardless of what the task may be try and find a way to help.

As we go throughout the week let us keep the attitude of Linda Crawford in our minds. This kind of attitude will make the world a much more pleasant place to be.
