Hospitality, Part 8

Hospitality, Part 8
-Char Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow

Do we remember that gentleness is a fruit of the Spirit? How about within our home?  We may think of ministry as being ‘out there’ somewhere but in our calling to hospitality it brings it to right where we live.  Many times I have needed to apologize to my family for a wrong attitude. I do not want the Holy Spirit to be grieved. I love living in the peace of God rather than the heaviness of pushing my selfish ways. Yes, it affects everyone within the home.

Gentleness is so healing and so pleasant as it fills us in our attitudes and deeds. I love being a vessel of gentleness rather than a vessel of harshness.

But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control... (Galatians 5:22-23 NLT).


Char Lessin was raised on a Minnesota farm and grew to love the Lord at a young age. She and Roy met while they attended Bethany Fellowship in Bloomington, MN and early in their marriage they served together as missionaries in Mexico and Puerto Rico. She continues to serve the Lord through their home in NW Arkansas, ministering to the people that the Lord brings to her.
