I just absolutely loved my morning devotion today. Mind you, I didn’t quite get to it right when I woke up. But such is the life of a mother. The verses to contemplate were:
I know a lot of about hospitality. We travel to six different seminars per year with my husband. I meet hundreds of people. I am kind, gentle, outgoing, friendly, sweet…you get my drift. I am pretty good at it. And honestly, most of the time it is real. I don’t have to pretend. I really am happy to meet people, talk about what Jesus is doing in their lives, and pray with them.
But what about my own family?
Am I being hospitable to them? I should be. Why would I be nicer to strangers than my own family? This is what I struggle with. This is why morning devotion and time in God’s word is so important. If you are willing, God will show you where you need to make changes in your heart. He does me.
So my prayer today is not to get frustrated so easily, not to lose my temper, or raise my voice, to think before I act. Will you pray for me too?
