Holiday Hospitality • Ep 115

this podcast is sponsored by Apologia

In an age of Pinterest and Instagram, we have mistaken hospitality for entertaining. One says, “Look what I can do!” and the other says, “What can I do for you…”

Hospitality is not about the perfect recipe or decor but all about opening your home to show the love of Jesus.

This holiday season we will have opportunities to open our doors more than usual. Let’s use those opportunities to share the love of God and practice true hospitality.

Simply...Seeking Him

Daily Scripture

Welcome to Simply Seeking Him…Daily Scripture Encouragement. There is nothing greater that you can do in your life than to know God’s Word. He is the reason we exist and our purpose in life is to know Him and make Him known! My passion for the Bible has prompted me to encourage women to study His Word daily. We hope this daily Scripture will help you to do just that!

Each day there will be a Scripture to read. I encourage you to use the translation of your choice. I would also encourage you to get a journal specifically for writing out Scripture. There is something about putting the pen to paper that helps us connect with His Word even more. Then take it further if you can and memorize part of it as well as researching the verses YOURSELF. We have provided some helpful resources but there are many out there.

Today’s Scripture

Psalm 18: 30-31

As for God, his way is perfect:
The Lord’s word is flawless;
he shields all who take refuge in him.
For who is God besides the Lord?
And who is the Rock except our God?

Psalm 23: 1-6 (NIV)

The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, 3 he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. 4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
