1 Peter 4:8-9 (ESV)
8 Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. 9 Show hospitality to one another without grumbling.

There are words from the Apostle Peter. Christ said of Peter, �That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.� Peter the foundation of the church reminds those who have come to know Christ to keep loving one another earnestly. For love can forgive many faults, sins and errors. Hospitality should be added to love and should be given with a peace of mind that does not reflect upon past faults.

An act of hospitality is a self-sacrificing act. It is an act where one gives without intention of receiving back. If one is to be hospitable to another then it should be done without grumbling, without complaint, and without a desire for self gain. Love can be shown through hospitable acts. God being hospitable towards us offers a free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ. God does so out of love and has no complaint about the gift offered. This holiday season show your love and hospitality towards others. Show others the love that God shows you.
