Anyone who welcomes you welcomes me, and anyone who welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. Matthew 10: 40

Lord I love the word welcome.
You pour out Your gift of hospitality upon us for us to give to others.
While I find it is so much easier to grumble and complain, to get frustrated or discouraged, I ask that with Your divine empowerment, I serve with enthusiasm, cheerfulness, and diligence.
May I greet others joyfully with open arms.
May I smile sincerely and listen empathetically with an approachable heart
May my presence be like refreshing sip of water to a friend’s parched soul.
May I set others at ease and foster a sense of belonging.
May I be transparent so only You shine through.
May my heart and hands give without expectation.
May I make room for others in my time, space, and care.
May I erect bridges and form deep bonds in Christian love.
May I dispel loneliness and build community.
May I welcome others as I welcome You.
