Today’s Reading – Acts 18-19
They asked him [Paul] to stay longer, but he declined. As he said farewell to them, though, he added, “God willing, I will return.” Then he sailed off from Ephesus.
Acts 18:20-21 CEB
Perhaps Paul was the first Ms. Manners.
Paul teaches us a great lesson of hospitality and being a guest – Don’t over stay your welcome and leave them wanting more!
As we enter the Holiday season, keep Paul in mind and don’t over stay your welcome.
Visit with friends, drop off presents, but know how to make an exit!
Not sure that was the lesson we were to draw from this passage, but it is a good tip for being a good guest!
