The Duty of Hospitality

Today's Maurin

People who are in need and are not afraid to beg give to people not in need the occasion to do good for goodness’sake.

Modern society calls the beggar bum and panhandler and gives him the bum’s rush. But the Greeks used to say that people in need are the ambassadors of the gods.

Although you may be called bums and panhandlers you are in fact the Ambassadors of God.

As God’s Ambassadors you should be given food, clothing and shelter by those who are able to give it.

Mahometan teachers tell us that God commands hospitality, and hospitality is still practiced in Mahometan countries.

But the duty of hospitality is neither taught nor practiced in Christian countries.
