“When you enter a house, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’ If someone who promotes peace is there, your peace will rest on them; if not, it will return to you.” (Luke 10:5-6
I am on vacation at my sister’s new home. She and her husband had many problems with its construction. I love that this verse appeared while I was there. Every day I am here, I have prayed, “Peace to this house.” Since my sister promotes peace, the peace will rest on her, her family and her home.
Every time we enter someone else’s home, we should pray, “Peace to this house,” honoring those showing us hospitality. This Bible verse tells us to spread God’s love in this way.
Father God, it is easy to spread love to those showing us hospitality. Help to rid me of my spirit of timidity and love those who care for me by offering to pray with them. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
