Welcome on the Mat
Peter is hospitable. He has seen Jesus free a man of an evil spirit (last Sunday) and now invites him to his home. The family tells Jesus that Peter’s mother-in-law is ill. Immediately, Jesus restores her to health. She responds by serving the group a meal. She too is hospitable.
Jesus exudes hospitality. He welcomes the sick and distressed townspeople that come crowding round the door of his hosts’ home. Some needed healing of body, others needed healing of souls.
The hospitable person offers whatever the caller most needs: time, listening ear, empathy, food, guidance, good humour, encouragement, prayer
