So last week my roommate and I had 3 friends over for dinner.
You could say it was my first "grown up" dinner party.
We all sat on the floor because I don't own a coffee table
(Well I do, but I took it apart and it's sitting in our laundry closet because it cuts up the room)
We cooked Chicken Burgers, Baked Potatoes, and Broccoli and Cheese.
For appetizers I had cheese and crackers and plums (don't ask me where those came in... I guess I had a lot to get rid of)
We decided to invite two people from our church that we don't know as well and that our new to our fellowship and we really just wanted to get to know them.
It was a great time. We asked each other the funniest questions and laughed the whole night. We all definitely got to know each other better and to finish off the night we all went around the circle and prayed.
This night reminded me of this scripture:
"Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality." Romans 12:13
I recommend that if you are just an acquaintance with someone and would like to get to know them, invite them over for dinner!
"Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares."- Hebrews 13:2
"You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God." -Leviticus 19:34
