For Sunday 21 July 2019

 

As we gather for worship Sunday the Old Testament reading reminds us of the importance of hospitality. Reflecting on this account, the letter to the Hebrews encourages: "Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by doing so some people have entertained angels without knowing it" (Hebrews 13:2). The value of hospitality (and by extension many other important things in our lives) is qualified in the reading from Luke, however, when Jesus describes the decision to learn from Him as "good" and the "one thing . . . necessary." It is this wonderful message of which St. Paul writes in his letter to the Colossians, "the mystery hidden for ages . . . which is Christ in you, the hope of glory" (Colossians 1:26-27). May that wonderful message receive our focused attention not only in worship today, but throughout our lives–whether we be at home, at work, or at leisure.
