Entertain Angels

Spread the love

One-minute read.

Let brotherly love continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby; some have entertained angels unawares.

Hebrews 13:1-2

As believers in Christ, we have a common bond with those who enjoy the benefits of His saving grace and should have nothing but warm feelings toward them. Of course, we do still have our sinful nature, and every church contains imperfect people who do imperfect things. But ultimately, we should strive to love each other, despite our differences, to the best of our ability. Whether people believe in Jesus or not, God commands us to love everyone. Our actions draw people to Christ and help them discover God’s gift.

And sometimes, we entertain angels. On a girl’s hiking weekend at Canaan Valley, my friend and I feel sure we met an angel who saved our lives. Not having researched the area well, novice hikers, we decided to explore Dolly Sods Wilderness on our last day. Driving the windy mountain roads, we realized we might have bit off more than we could chew. Finally, when we found the trail entrance, a kind gentleman greeted us and immediately asked questions. In a few minutes, we realized we had not come prepared for the treacherous path and needed to find something else to do. Patiently, our angel gave us safer options that afforded beautiful views without the possibility of getting stranded on a mountain.

Show love to everyone you meet. Only God knows when He will place an angel in your path to entertain and possibly save your life.


You never know when you will entertain an angel.


Lord, thank You for placing angels amongst us. Please fill our hearts with love and help us show affection to everyone we meet. Let us not become weary of doing good and entertain angels well.
