Daily verse

Each of us should please our neighbours for their good, to build them up.
— Romans 15:2

Thought for the day

Fancy a cuppa?

My friend was far from home on a three-month course. Tea was served at regular intervals. The trouble was it wasn't real tea so far as he was concerned. He needed his tea at least once a day and drinking it alone was just not right. Making it was a whole palava. The result, the perfect tea that was just right for him, it was disgusting to me.

Years ago, sitting on the ground eating with some Muslims in a former French colony, my host lent across to me and said “You people are OK. You eat our food. The French never would.” I don’t know how fair that was on the French but I learnt that loving our neighbours includes eating their food and drink.

Jesus did. Whether he enjoyed it or not, we are not told.

Prayer for the day

Lord, help me bless people by being their guest just as you did.

Daily action

Accept an invitation from a Muslim to eat or drink with them.
