I recently unloaded a whole ton of thoughts on Twitter about hospitality. This is a good summary of the whys and hows of hospitality.
By opening up our hearts and homes to others in hospitality, we experience fellowship within the Christian community (Rom. 12:13; 1 Pet. 4:9), and we can do mercy ministry and evangelism toward those outside the Christian community (Luke 14:12).
Valentine’s Day has certainly contributed to the way western culture celebrates and expresses love, associating it more closely with the material. U.S. consumer spending for 2018 is expected to be $19.6 billion.
This is a really interesting thought experiment.
I guess if there’s significant global warming then this ridiculous competition might die out.
On the other hand there might be less of this. Amazing.
