Matthew 10:40-42 “Anyone who welcomes you welcomes me, and anyone who welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. 41 Whoever welcomes a prophet as a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward, and whoever welcomes a righteous person as a righteous person will receive a righteous person’s reward. 42 And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is my disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward. (NIV)

 These are aspects of hospitality.  We are to be welcoming to people and giving and helpful.  We do these things not because we will be rewarded though we will be.  We do these things because we love God and His love is in us and needs to pass through us to others.  The only way we can get more of God’s love in us is to let it pass through us in order to make more room for more love.  It is a circle of in through and out and in through and out through all eternity.  We can never do enough or give enough because God is all giving and all doing.  What is amazing is that He trusts and loves us enough to work through us.  This is more than enough award.  It is a joy to experience God blessing someone through us.  Let’s practice increasing this cycle during lent until it becomes a natural part of our being as we become more and more one in our Lord, Jesus.
