Kind and Charitable

Today's reading: Genesis 18:1-8

Abraham was intent on living his life in a way that honored and pleased God, and this mindset permeated and hence motivated everything he did. As we come to Genesis 18, we find Abraham at the entrance of his tent looking out over his land, eager for any opportunity to serve that God would put before him that day. When Abraham sees three men have come to his home, he immediately takes action, running (at the ripe old age of 99) to greet them and offer food, rest and accommodations.

Both he and Sarah willingly and joyfully opened their home, extended kindness and shared what they had with these men. I love this example and the reminder it provides that God is pleased when we are kind, generous and offer help to those around us.

Who do you know that has a kind and charitable heart for people, and what sorts of things do they do? When was the last time you invited someone into your home—for a meal, for coffee or even just to get to know them better? Do you look for opportunities to be hospitable and to extend God's love to others? Tami

Hi Tami, we see that Abraham and Sarah did not excuse themselves from serving due to age!

We see in your words they were eager to serve and with a very nice even before they were made aware who their three guests were especially the Lord!!

I live with my sister and her husband and they are great at being hospitable and being kind and charitable.

This is not what I am known to be though I have been kind, charitable even though I have lived in a small home with my husband.
