One person has stated that hospitality is resistance. In a world that caters to the rich, uber gifted and best looking, true Biblical hospitality is a prophetic voice. When the larger empire disregards and dishonors certain persons, small acts of respect and welcome are powerful gestures of a greater Kingdom! The apostle Paul commanded the Christian as part of what it means to “offer our bodies a living sacrifice…” to “…practice hospitality.” This is not an option. That really is what is amazingly attractive about Jesus for me. He was not a respecter of persons. I find myself in this dual processing battle daily on how to mete out my “precious” time, but Jesus seemed to sashay through the daily with an ease and acceptance of the moment…that each person he met held the same value and importance as the next and he stopped and ate. He broke bread and drank (Luke 5:30) with people who probably could or would never repay him. Counter-culturalism at its finest.
