“And God is able to all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work” (2 Corinthians 9:8).
My six siblings and I were puzzled on how Dad and Mom with meager income from the farm provided food and accommodation at our two-bedroom home for the visiting ministry workers and brethren.
One pastor who stayed with us hit my innocent heart, Voltaire Maghirang, always prayed with tears in his eyes for blessings to our family. There were times when he was puzzled by the ethnic food that we served. Out of poverty with the love of Jesus my parents reached out to any pastors who served in our home church. I am assured that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was honored by my parent’s hospitality.
At the moment, five of us were married blessed with our own homes, our daily needs met with healthy bodies working and serving the Lord Jesus in different volunteer ministries.
With my precious husband’s support our home is the venue of our monthly prayer breakfast. Our imperfect life, simple food, and modest home is open to people who needed to hear and experience the love of Jesus Christ.
Hospitality displayed by my parents duplicated through us shows that you can entertain people with simple meals in your modest home. What matters most is the love and encouragement that takes place during the visit.
Our attitude when we give is more important than the amount we give. What holds you back to open your home and life to others?
