Hospitality vs. Unfriendliness Lesson 1 Making sure that the environment is suitable for those whom we serve
One woman, unnamed yet a strong presence in the Old Testament, made sure her invited guest was well cared for and his needs were met. Elisha, often tired as he made his rounds, looked forward to the unexpected kindnesses of her and her family. When hard times came, he was able to repay the kindness to a prophet with "a prophet's reward"... Repeating dividends often come to those who entertain others with a willingness to serve without thought of reward.
