The Welcome Mat

...and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. Luke 10:38

Am I willing? Would I welcome Him in? When given the opportunity, do I? Martha welcomed Jesus into her home. She wasn't perfect and she got flustered when it came to getting things right. She wished her family members would pitch in and help with the work load. She even complained, but she welcomed Him in. Obviously, the real Jesus is not about to walk into town looking for a hot meal and a place to rest His head, but when He sends friends and strangers along, what is my response? I'm learning... at least I hope I am. I often fail, but my desire is to welcome others into my home in Jesus' name and share with them His love. If I am willing, I'm sure He will provide plenty of opportunity to put it into practice. That is the scary part...
