I keep trying to write this evening, but nothing voluminous seems to come. I think I am probably "papered out" due to all the papers I have written over the past few weeks. So, this week I will leave you with some scripture to mull over.
Remember what Paul says, in Hebrews 13:1-3, in regards to interacting with those you do not know.
"1 Let brotherly love continue. 2 Don’t neglect to show hospitality, for by doing this some have welcomed angels as guests without knowing it. 3 Remember the prisoners, as though you were in prison with them, and the mistreated, as though you yourselves were suffering bodily."
And while you are at it, remember this passage, especially the part that is in bold. When I read this passage a few days ago in my devotions, it hit me like a ton of bricks. Luke 16:8-12.
8 “The master praised the unrighteous manager because he had acted astutely. For the sons of this age are more astute than the sons of light in dealing with their own people. 9 And I tell you, make friends for yourselves by means of the unrighteous money so that when it fails, they may welcome you into eternal dwellings. 10 Whoever is faithful in very little is also faithful in much, and whoever is unrighteous in very little is also unrighteous in much. 11 So if you have not been faithful with the unrighteous money, who will trust you with what is genuine? 12 And if you have not been faithful with what belongs to someone else, who will give you what is your own?"
