2 Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it (Hebrews 13:2)
I was really hungry during my office hours at about in the mid-day when the sun shines the brightest. I lodged myself into a local fast food cafe and ordered for a plate of buff noodles.
I began reading a newspaper placed at my table and waited for the food. I was going through the article about getting higher position at the job with real interest.
Suddenly a stranger came to sit next to my table. He snatched the newspapers and pretended to read it. I was puzzled. Then my noodles came and I began to eat my noodles.
The man looked at me. I observed him, he was a person from village and ragley dressed with poor shoes on. I sensed as if he was expected something of me.
He again returned the newspaper back to me and gave a loud laugh. He asked,”I like what you are reading. What’s the name of this place”.
I really did not want to talk, because I was ashamed in front of all others. He again began talking and I signaled that I was dumb and did not know how to talk.
The cafe owner asked why he was there. Everybody started laughing at him. By this time i had finished having my snacks and was ready to pay money. The old man stood and walked. I observed him while he was walking and felt pity.
I felt as if I did not do my job of helping this man and he may be an angel who might have come to my service for a moment.
Then I repented before LORD saying, “Lord I am sorry for what I did today to the strange old man. I promise YOU I will help the next one that comes to my aid.”
I should have at least talked and given him a cup of cold drink or some food to eat.
“All strangers who come to your hospitality who have a message for you if you are hospitable especially needy ones are all angels”. THOMAS BOGATY
