Today's culture is where moving faster means getting more done, where busy is a badge of honor, and an internal sense of speed keeps people running without taking a breath. Can you relate? In a season of holidays and festivities, on top of the normal day-to-day run of errands and kid drop-offs and work and school, the pace is not the first thing most people think of adjusting. This is what makes it easy to hear "hospitality" as an essential way of life with Jesus and head nod, but immediately become distracted.
Hospitality encapsulates this journey from stranger to friend to family. And, because it's a journey, hospitality doesn't happen in a hurry. That's why pace is not only practical but also purposeful. Look through 3 stories of hospitality in the Gospel of Luke and see what God has to say about unhurried presence as hospitality. Are you living at a pace that matches your purpose?
