“The Lord always keeps his promises; he is gracious in all he does” (Psalm 145:13b, NLT).

I’ve only been able to stay at a Bed & Breakfast on a few occasions, but each time has been a wonderful experience. They feel more like home than a hotel and the owners/hosts have been kind, welcoming and attentive. The little extras, like making popcorn for my friend and me so we could better enjoy our movie made one stay memorable. And the breakfast was marvelous!

A gracious host is one who provides everything a guest needs and then some. In a way, God is our gracious host during our short stay on earth. He has provided a whole planet, with fresh air, food, water and raw materials to build whatever we want. He even threw in flowers and sunsets to make it pretty. Even better than these, he has given us the promise of a long-term stay, a forever booking if you will, in and through his gracious son, Jesus. He has promised us everything we will need and then some (that’s the part we can’t even imagine) and he always keeps his promises.
