Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing” – Hebrews 13:2 (NIV).
There is a true story worth telling. Somewhere in July 1998, William Lindsay of Las Vegas, US decided he should bequeath some of his fortune to a welcoming Scottish institution of higher learning. He run through the directory and abruptly called one university.
“I have a donation to make,” he shared. Taking him for a crank, the receptionist dismissed him. “We don’t waste time on jokers.” The phone went dead.
Disappointed, he called another university- the University of Glasgow. The receptionists there received him warmly and invited him for a visit. In March 2000 the University of Glasgow received a check worth 1.2 million pounds from William Lindsay.
You never know whom you meet or take a call from! Sometimes this is the case when people visit our church fellowships too. We ignore them more so based on their attire or speech. Discouraged, they move to other fellowship (or faith) where they bless those they find.
Always be nice to strangers. You never know whom the Lord has sent to visit with you!
Prayer for today: Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, today I pray that I am always sensitive to your angels who come to visit sometimes in unexpected ways, and I may be nice to all people for you never know, this I pray in Jesus’s name.
