Kindness from Strangers
« on: March 01, 2008, 05:34:59 PM »
While I was taking a flight to Surabaya, Indonesia, for a Bible conference, the flight attendants brought meal service. I had just eaten in the Singapore airport, so I declined, asking only for a soft drink. The Indonesian man next to me, a stranger, was visibly concerned.

The man asked if I felt okay, and I assured him I was fine. He then asked if perhaps the meal didn’t appeal to me. I responded that I just wasn’t hungry. He then surprised me by offering his own meal to me, thinking that if I tried it I might actually enjoy it. It was done in such a gentle and genuine way that it was obviously an expression of his concern for my welfare.

In a self-centered world where we are conditioned to look out for our own interests above and beyond all else, such kindness was unexpected. The man’s simple gesture showed a different kind of heart and a different set of values. As followers of Christ, we are called to model a similar counter-cultural attitude toward life (Phil. 2:1-8).

In Hebrews 13:2 we read, “Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels.” What better way to represent Christ than with kindness—even to strangers.  — Bill Crowder

Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels. —Hebrews 13:2

Mike, that phrase was so beautiful, bro, it has reduced me to tears reading it.
“Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels.”
Amen, Amen, Amen!

You're welcome, Bran.

I know it's difficult to trust strangers these days but there are times we just have to trust God for all consequences.
Romans 10:9
"That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved."
