Many of us who do not have the Spiritual Gift of Hospitality might tend to only think about it as an attempt to change our behavior toward others. But God does not desire to simply change our behavior. Instead, God desires to change our character through the practice of spiritual disciplines and an obedient desire to know the heart of God. Being void of possessing the Spiritual Gift of Hospitality according to some Gifts Assessment Survey does not exempt us from participation in this practice. The key is identifying ways in which we can use the Spiritual Gifts we have been given to fully participate in Radical Hospitality that is rooted in Christ.
"Most of all, love each other steadily and unselfishly, because love makes up for many faults.
Show hospitality to each other without complaint. Use whatever gift you’ve received for the good of one another so that you can show yourselves to be good stewards of God’s grace in all its varieties." 1 Peter 4:8-10
