The Hospitality Word

You'll also find hospitality in the Bible. In various verses, Christian pastors and Christians themselves are called on to be hospitable to one another (1 Peter 4:9 or 1 Timothy 3:2).  It means to be hospitable and generous to guests. Another word also translated hospitality means, "Love to strangers and hospitality."  The point of both words - entertaining and hospitality - in their use in the Bible is bringing someone (stranger or believer) into your home and treating them in a way that would please our Lord.
