Hospitality is the JOY of serving others.
Go here to read about our two favorite sisters Martha & Mary Luke 10:38-42
Martha had a heart to entertain, while Mary had a heart to serve her Lord . Mary did what Martha needed to do and that was to put Christ first.
Hospitality is about the heart more then it is about the home. Spending time in God's word, without God's word guiding us, it becomes empty entertainment.
Y'all just keep it simple. Give your home a good cleaning a few days before your luncheon. Hide your clutter, it is amazing how much nicer your home will look with out the clutter sitting around. Don't forget to knock out the cobwebs.
While you wait just keep your home tidy. Prepare your meal the day before if possible. Having little or none to prepare the morning of your luncheon.
The morning of the luncheon make those beds, and freshen up your home, you and the children. Nothing says welcome then a hostess who is neat and tidy in her appearance.
Hospitably is a Ministry
Set the table to the theme of the season. This is my favorite part is to set the table. I love pretty dishes they are my weakness. *- (wink) Your morning will go smoothly when you plan and prepare your home in advance.
