Alton Brown shares some great insights about hospitality in this 2 minute video. Granted, he is not speaking of hospitality with reference to application in the Christian life, but pay close attention to his points because he is not not far from the kingdom (see Mark 12:34). Christians would do well to take his thoughts on hospitality to heart. If we approached hospitality this way, then we might find that it is an important means for inviting people into the kingdom. Consider how often we see Jesus sharing a meal with people. What if this wasn’t the backdrop for presenting the Gospel, but the meal itself was the presentation of the Gospel?
