Women in Acts (8)

Paul traveled to the city of Philippi. There he met a woman named Lydia. She believed in God and gathered with some women to pray. Paul preached to the women about Jesus. “Lydia was listening to Paul, and the Lord opened her heart to accept what Paul was saying. She and all the people living in her house were baptized” (verses 14b-15a).
Lydia gave Paul and his friends a place to stay and food to eat while they were in Philippi. That is called hospitality. In 1 Peter 4:9, Peter encourages Christians to practice hospitality. “Open your homes to each other and share your food without complaining.”
Look for ways that you can show hospitality to other Christians. Ask a family to come to your home for a meal. Invite a visiting missionary to stay in your home. Take a meal to an elderly person or someone who is sick. Love and encourage your brothers and sisters in Christ today!
