Read - Genesis 18:1-9
Abraham looked up and saw three men standing nearby. When he saw them, he hurried from the entrance of his tent to meet them and bowed low to the ground. Genesis 18:2
Leftover’s flavors intensify the next day. I guess it’s something about the seasonings that gives the food more flavor. It is okay to feed our family day old food but would you serve it to a stranger, friend, dignitary, or even Jesus?
Well most of us would. God ask for our best yet more often than not we give leftovers. Not just to our Father in heaven but to everyone, friends and strangers.
Three strangers came to visit Abraham unannounced. Instead of turning them away he ran and greeted them enthusiastically. He went as far as having his wife bake fresh bread; he selected his prime beef and served up a feast.
Abraham entertained the men with excitement he treated them like family. God takes notice of our genuine willingness to help others – friends and strangers.
The relationship with the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost should improve. Our good Godly manners should teach us how to honor all men. By doing so, we will always give our best to God and not our leftovers.
