Practice Hospitality this Holiday Season – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool


Happy Friday! In the Bible, we read a lot about serving in the home. The early church met in one another’s homes. They often ate together, served together, and ministered together. In our culture, we do not see than happening. Do you practice hospitality? If you don”t, what holds you back? Is it your home? Is is a lack of finances? Is it a lack of getting to know fellow believers in your area?

This Holiday season, purpose to offer hospitality in your home. It does not have to be an elaborate event. You can even do this as a pot luck type event, or you can host a cookie exchange. There are lots of ways to offer hospitality in your home. Ask around for widows or widowers who might be along for Thanksgiving and invite them to eat with you.

To help you get ready for this, your mission today is to pull out some of your serving items and wash them. Get them ready to use! I installed new rack holders in my kitchen cabinet to hold my platter upright. I can store more in that area with the rack holders, and they don’t fall over.

Have a great week-end!
