With Thanksgiving and the Christmas season upon us, we can get very stressed out about making our home perfect for entertaining. But today I am talking about focusing on hospitality and how you make people feel in your home.
The difference between hospitality and entertaining is that one says, “Look what I can do.” The other says, “What can I do for you?”
I have evolved greatly in this area over the years from seeking the perfect home for my guests, to wanting them to simply feel God’s love in my home above all else. There was a time when I wouldn’t dare want someone to stop over unexpectedly because things weren’t perfect, to now opening my home any time any day.
I would rather people leave my home saying, “Karen loves Jesus,” than, “Karen has a perfect home.”
Every time you open your door, you are ministering. Remember that as you prepare to open your home this holiday season.
Coming next week to the podcast: “Simplify the Holidays.”
This summer, I am hosting a women’s retreat in Gettysburg, PA. In a world of excess, we are going to focus on that fact that Jesus is enough. The world will tell you YOU are enough. But truly, HE is enough. He is all we need. We don’t rely on ourselves, or earthly comforts, but on Him alone. I have lived with it all stripped away, and I have seen that yes, Jesus is enough. In fact, Jesus is MORE than enough.
Early Bird Registration is Open! Join us for this life changing and life-giving event. You will spend two days with other sisters in Christ, tired of what the world offers, and ready to live the life that HE offers.
