In our Daily Bible Reading for Thursday, found on your One Conversation™ page, we see the power of integrity and being used as a vessel for The Lord, after the Widow’s son was raised. What miracles have you witnessed in your life?
The widow in 1 Kings showed hospitality to Elijah by opening her home to him. What does hospitality mean, and what does it look like through a biblical lens? “Not only should we distinguish hospitality from entertaining, but we should also distinguish it from fellowship. Generally speaking, fellowship happens among believers in biblical community (which we need). But hospitality literally means “love for strangers.” Hospitality is what we extend to outsiders, strangers, and those in physical and spiritual need.” James Jackson discusses “Hospitality: What is Hospitality?” here http://blog.lifeway.com/biblestudiesforlife/what-is-hospitality/
No one likes to go it alone. We want to know someone has our back or is standing with us. We carry out our responsibilities better when someone is encouraging us.
