Hospitality & Angels

I was in a new state, and working a new job, knew practically no one locally, and I didn’t have a car. My transportation was an old 10-speed bike. Going shopping was an adventure and juggling bags on the way home a challenge.

One cold, windy fall day, a tire blew. Though still several blocks away, the store was closer than my apartment, so I started walking the bike there with the intent to call for help. Another man on a bike appeared beside me. He was Hispanic and didn’t speak English.

After exchanged gestures, I realized he wanted to fix my tire. He motioned me to stand back and then went to work applying a patch and using a hand pump to fill the tire.

When he finished I said “Gracias!” and offered him money. He refused, hopped on his bike, and was gone. Was he an angel? On that cold, windy fall day, he was mine!

Look for opportunities to be someone’s angel today.

“Don’t forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it!” (Hebrews 13:2, NLT).

Have you ever been visited by an earthly angel? Have you been an earthly angel? What was it like? Do you believe heavenly angels intervene with in our lives on earth? Why or why not? Please share your thoughts and experiences in the comments!
