An introvert can practice biblical hospitality. As an Introvert, you can practice Biblical Hospitality in a smaller setting. Introverts do enjoy a quieter atmosphere and getting energy with some alone time. Stepping out of your comfort zone takes a commitment and willingness knowing you are making an eternal difference.
Biblical Hospitality is one of my Spiritual gifts. I have spent over 31 years blessing other people in different settings. I can’t imagine doing anything more rewarding than loving people through serving them a meal around my table.
You don’t have to be the life of the party
An Introvert can practice Biblical Hospitality even if they are not the life of the party. It’s a testament to God’s creativity that He uniquely created each person and can use you with your unique gifts and abilities. You will probably be more comfortable with a smaller group which is perfect for getting to know your guests.
A Natural Setting in Your Home
What better place to practice Biblical hospitality than your home?
- Pray and ask God to show you who you should reach out to.
- Be authentic. You can practice Biblical Hospitality on a smaller scale. Invite people over for dessert or coffee.
- Plan out what you want to do during the dessert or coffee.
- Focus on your guests. Remember it is not about the food or decorations. Keep everything simple.
- Ask open-ended questions. Really concentrate on your guests and how you can make a real connection. Enjoy the time to relax and get to know your guests.
“Biblical hospitality chooses to engage rather than unplug, open rather than close, initiate rather than sit idly”.
