Driving it home...
One of the verses in today’s scripture reading asks: “…if you greet only your brothers and sisters, what more are you doing? Don’t even the Gentiles do the same?” (v. 47). Jesus is making the point that greeting only those you know is not “more.” It is simply the status quo. Of course, it is a wonderful thing to greet our friends in Christ, but sometimes we exclude potential brothers and sisters. This can become a glaring issue during Sunday morning worship. While we still have a greeting time during the first service, we have moved away from it in the second service. Having a greeting time in the 1st service helps us with a particular transition, but sometimes we rush to see those we know and exclude, quite by accident, the visitor. Allow me to encourage each of our church family to break away from the status quo and intentionally look for those we don’t know. No one should ever be made to feel forgotten or unnoticed, even by accident. The “more” that Jesus is talking about is a cut above – it is going out of our way to do something important – something needed. While our friends are important, Jesus seems to indicate that visitors should take precedence. A true friend will understand not getting all the attention. Someone new might not understand why they were overlooked! So, let’s continue to strive to welcome all - before, during and after the service! ~ Brian
