Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 37

Welcoming Strangers

Hebrews 13:2

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

Have you ever had anyone to your house you really didn’t know? Have you ever invited a perfect stranger over for a cup of tea, or lunch, or to spend the night? Debbie and I are often in a town where we’re strangers. We have experienced hospitality that, many times, has turned out to be a mutual blessing.

One of the hallmarks of the early church was their hospitality. In Hebrews 13:2, we find this: “Don’t be forgetful to entertain strangers; for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.” Pray for discernment – you do need to be careful. But, there just might be a blessing waiting, too.

Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 22

God is All We Need

Hebrews 13:5

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

How many times have you been disappointed by someone or something? Maybe a plan you had didn’t work out. A thing you thought would last a long time suddenly broke. Someone you trusted let you down. Life is filled with disappointments. That’s why we ought not hold onto this world too tightly, or love it too dearly.

Paul mentioned in Hebrews 13:5, “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as you have; for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” In other words, God is all we need to make things right.
