Hospitality is now an industry. The dictionary still refers to hospitality as giving guests a cordial and generous reception, but if you search hospitality with Google you will see it is an industry. In the Bible hospitality is the commanded way to treat strangers and it also is listed as a gift.

Last night our family and another family were invited to a potluck and pumpkin carving at the home of some friends. We ate too much, talked about both serious and trivial matters, laughed, and then our hosts spread a tarp on their living room floor and some used a pumpkin as the venue to display their creativity. It was the type of hospitality that isn’t an industry.

From the tater tots to the pizza, it was a very *Comfortable* evening, wasn't it? So glad we could all be together.
