We enjoy having people in our home and try to do it on a regular basis. This is easier at some times than at others, depending on family circumstances, busyness of our season of life, etc. I think it definitely has to be a commitment or it will easily fall to the wayside as life gets busy. Our children are so great in encouraging us in our practice of hospitality, though, and that serves to keep us accountable (even when we’d be more inclined to just skip it for a week or so). Most Sunday mornings, they eagerly ask, “Who’s coming over today?!” It definitely helps us stay excited about it and spurs us on to commit our family to it!
