Good afternoon! I pray that your work week or school week is going well thus far.
TFTD: You could be entertaining angels.
Hebrews 13:1-2 (NKJV)
13 Let brotherly love continue. 2 Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels.
Take a moment to ask yourself the following question, “Do I treat people with brotherly love on a continuous basis?” Stop and really think about this question. How many of you reading this can honestly say that you treat others with love on a regular basis? I wish I could say this was true, but there are some times when I may allow my emotions to rule and respond in a negative way to someone’s bad attitude or smart-Aleck remarks nevertheless, God calls us to extend brotherly love.
Why is it so important to be kind to everyone you encounter? We’ll on a practical sense you never know who you may encounter. This is a small world and you have to be mindful of how you treat others. You could run into a friend of your parents, your bosses spouse, a church member that you never met and the list goes on. Now in a biblical sense it’s important to treat others with brotherly love because you could be entertaining angels. WOW!!! Did you ever stop to think that someone you encountered today, might have been an angel?
Take a moment to think about how you treated everyone you came in contact with just for today. Have you extended brotherly love to EVERYONE? Or did you tell off the co-worker by the copying machine? Or maybe you yelled at the waiter or waitress at the restaurant. What if that person you were unkind to was an angel dispatched by God to check on you? Each day we are given test and God commands us to love our neighbors and our enemies. Each day we need to practice extending love to all people because you never know who you will encounter.
I am speaking to the choir, spend more time listening than speaking, pray before you speak, and then when you speak, allow God to talk in a gentle tone through you. You never know that the person standing in front of you could be an angel.
***Lesson for life: Extend brotherly love to everyone everyday!***
Have a blessed day! I love you all with the love of Jesus Christ!
