No Interruptions

Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it. Hebrews 13:2
We may all have our own agenda of things we have to do and sometimes when an interruption occurs we may get upset,  but these are not necessarily a bad thing.  If you are sitting alone reading a book and a person starts into a conversation, the best thing to do is to stop reading your book and show God's love to this person. You never know what someone is going through. You could be just the medicine this person needs to brighten their day.
It is easy to be selfish and self centered and not want bothered with someone else. Perhaps your irritation grows because you just wanted some peace and quiet.  Someone who sits next to you on a airplane may want to babble on when you just want to rest. Be kind, show love, and forget about yourself for a while. This momentary interruption is really no big deal. Try to imagine if you were a lonely homeless person and just wanted someone to smile at you or say hi. Don't let your own agenda stop you from showing the love of Christ wherever you go. 
Today if you are out and about don't be inconvenience when a person may start up a conversation with you. Being a Christian is more than wearing a cross around your neck. Live the life and be His hands and feet. 

PRAYER: Father when I have felt perturbed when interrupted when alone, forgive me. These may in fact be interruptions that I need to show your love. Make me aware of others and not self absorbed. In Jesus' name. Amen.
