We welcome Sam Dance our guest speaker.
Readings: Matthew 25.34- 40 Hebrews 13.1-2
“Don’t forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels”.
What you see is “not” what you get. Jesus has a surprise for us when we show kindness. To coin a well known Lotto term, “Hey, You Never Know”. How is your kindness? Is your Faith “In Action”?
The passage before us says ;
“I was hungry, and you fed me…I was a stranger, and you invited me in…I was naked, and you gave me clothing…. I was sick, and you cared for me…I was in prison, and you visited me.”
Your perspectives are like the many layers of an onion. Is our hunger, spiritual, the stranger, someone you know, nakedness, actually heartache and imprisoned loneliness or abuse?
Listen while Sam peels back those layers to give a fresh perspective.
