1 Peter 4:9
Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling.
To me this verse is a teaching verse that sounds really simple, almost humorous. But maybe there is another lesson here. Doing something because it is the right thing to do is obviously the right thing. But what if I am grumbling inside? If we behave according to God's desires for us, we change a little bit. We transform. What may have caused us to grumble initially may now bring us a bit of joy. And the good that results from our hospitality may outshine any small grumbling we had felt.
Lord God, this is an excellent lesson for me. I will look for opportunities to grow in this way. Help me to see them, please. Amen
