“Understanding the importance of assimilation may require you to change the way you think about service. God has not only given us the responsibility of being hospitable to his guests, but he has also given us the perfect example of how to go about it.
Jesus came to this earth to serve, not to be served. Throughout the New Testament, we see his examples of selfless service for those he had the opportunity to influence. And we’ve been left with the challenge of doing even greater things. That is a high challenge, especially when it comes to caring for those who may not know him.
When we serve our guests well, we reflect Jesus’s attitude and mind-set toward them.”
– Nelson Searcy and Jennifer Dykes Henson
