Scripture Reading: A Son Promised to Abraham and Sarah
This scripture reading tells the story of three men visiting Abraham at Mamre. There he shows them generous hospitality. They forecast that his wife Sarah will have a son even though she is quite elderly. Pastor Bob reminisces about his father’s sense of humor associating it to our scripture. He soon discusses the vital nature of offering hospitality to travelers in Abraham’s time. It could literally mean the difference between life and death. He links this to Hebrews 13:2, directing us to show hospitality to strangers and how it’s important in our time.
