Allow God to move you to be more hospitable and loving towards one another. This is the love of the Lord shining through us.
If a family member is poor and needs a place to stay, do not push them away, but open your doors to them, for thus saith the Lord.
Leviticus 25:35-36 (KJV)
35 And if thy brother be waxen poor, and fallen in decay with thee; then thou shalt relieve him: yea, though he be a stranger, or a sojourner; that he may live with thee.
36 Take thou no usury of him, or increase: but fear thy God; that thy brother may live with thee.
Oh Lord, I am so grateful that You have spoken to me through Your words, this night. I needed Your guidance and direction and You laid it on me through reading Leviticus, chapter 25. I am so glad that I had this conviction to read and go forth and do it. I would have never known that there were still things in my closet that needed to be thrown out. Even broken relationships needed mended and Your Word taught me how. In the past, I know that I made many mistakes. One being, tossing my wives sisters out of our house and being so mean to them by words and deeds. Oh how cold I was towards my wive’s own flesh and blood, and I am so sorry Lord. As I have told my wife and her sisters sorry, this day, I pray that You will also forgive me. You have convicted me of my wrongs and I want to come to You now and tell You that I am sorry. Please be merciful, oh Lord. You have taught me a lesson about my past and I pray that I will not make the same mistakes again. Help me to always live in Your light, oh Lord. May I show true kindness and hospitality towards everyone I meet. Especially family, may I serve them, oh Lord, as You love me. I pray that Your love will shine through me and into other people's lives. You are my God and I only want to follow You and do Your will. I love You Lord. Amen.
