Daily verse

All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favour of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
— Acts 2:44-47

Thought for the day

Eat!

At a mother and toddlers’ group that I go to with my daughter there is a Muslim lady who is originally from the Middle East.

Very often she brings a new friend to the group and she is always helping others, especially those who are new to the area.

She is a great blessing to many who know her.

When I see the gifts that God has given her to bless others, I pray that one day she will be using them in His Kingdom and for His glory.

Muslim culture is very hospitable and family oriented; food and eating play an important part in this.

Whenever I visit my Muslim friends I always leave having eaten a lot!

I feel sure that when they come to know Jesus this will be a distinctive of their new faith communities just as it was in Acts, and that many will meet in homes, eating together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favour of all the people.


Prayer for the day

Jesus thank you for the hospitality that Muslim communities show. We pray that they would receive you with wide open arms and that many would come to know you.


Daily action

Research your local area. How many Muslims are there in your town or city? Are there restaurants or cafes run by Muslims? Go and eat in one and enjoy their hospitality.
