How Hospitable is your Home?
We received, what I thought was a great compliment the other day. My oldest daughter asked if a few of her friends from college could come and stay with us for Easter since they lived so far away.
During a late night talking session, one of them, who goes to a Christian college but grew up in an unbelieving home, said that our family was way more normal than they thought we would be. I guess they thought that Christian homes were stuffy and unfun.
I took this as a compliment that someone would come to the realization that being a Christian can be a fun and “normal”. We did have bunches of fun, going to the park to play basketball and tag, also playing games at home and just hanging out. I hope that we gave them a good picture of what their family life could look like one day, in their Christian home.
I wanted to remind you all too, to have a home that has boundaries and rules to follow and yet is still a great place to be. After all getting down and playing right at the stage that they are in is they best way to have the opportunity to teach them.
