Sunday, May 24

We are God’s fellow workers.—1 Cor. 3:9.


God’s fellow workers are noted for practicing hospitality. In the Christian Greek Scriptures, the term translated “hospitality” means “kindness to strangers.” (Heb. 13:2; ftn.) God’s Word recounts events that teach us to show such love. (Gen. 18:1-5) We can and should seize opportunities to help others regularly, whether they are “related to us in the faith” or not. (Gal. 6:10) Can you work with God by showing hospitality to visiting full-time servants? (3 John 5, 8) Such occasions often provide an opportunity for “an interchange of encouragement.” (Rom. 1:11, 12) God’s Word encourages men in the congregation to work with Jehovah by reaching out for privileges of service and oversight. (1 Tim. 3:1, 8, 9; 1 Pet. 5:2, 3) Those who do so want to assist others in both practical and spiritual matters. (Acts 6:1-4) And those who care for necessary congregation duties will tell you that it is most enjoyable to assist others. w18.08 24 ¶6-7; 25 ¶10

You can't walk with God while holding hands with the Devil.

I jokingly asked one of our elders today, "How can we provide hospitality to the CO and his wife,

when they come to Zoom visit us in a couple a' weeks?"


He jokingly replied, "We hold up pictures of food."

Our elder suggested that we do Uber Eats for them (and do the same) and share the moment (both us and them) through Zoom: That proved a rather difficult endeavour as UBer eats does not operate where the CO and his wife reside: we settled for a session where they ended up sharing their experience with us: It turned out great..and faith-strengthening.
