Tilly loves company. She loves company so much she completely destroys a toy in their honor. Quickly.
Generally, I'm happy to have company as well. However, I don't feel the need to rip the newspaper up into little pieces or knock all the furniture over to celebrate their arrival.
Receiving visitors graciously and joyfully is valued in the Bible. Do you ever wonder why God stresses this, from Old to New Testatment? Is He trying to let us know that keeping the doors of our homes open to others should also translate to keeping the "doors" of our hearts open to them as well?
I don't know why. What do you think?
