Imagine the scene. It is a cold winter morning. You wake up and can almost see your breath. You definitely don't want to get out from under your quilts and blankets. But then it hits you. A scent of coffee and warm bread and maybe some bacon and eggs (or something equivalent for the vegetarians amongst us). Tempted?
We want our guests to feel comfortable and valued. Even if the person is a subordinate in some way, it is our duty to show them that their service is appreciated.
Sometimes it is more about what we give than what we get.
26. She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
Even when you disagree with someone, there is a way to express your opinion without belittling the thoughts and beliefs of other people. The words of one of my high school English teachers comes back to me; she was commenting on a idea expressed by a student (not me). She said, "That was a great argument. You are wrong. But you stated your point very well." I don't want to tell you how many years it has been since I heard those words.
Tell us the circumstances of an occasion when you felt welcomed into someone's house (or office, or religious service ....)
