“Greet ye one another with a kiss of charity. Peace be with you all that are in Christ Jesus. A-men” (1Peter5:14 KJV). We are thankful there are a number of ways to say hello in different languages and cultures. Just to name a few: Bonjour (France), Hola (Spanish), Hallo (German), Hello (American). Who doesn’t want to be greeted after entering a room, coming home, arriving at work, or at church? Surely we all do.
Saying hello must have been important to Jesus, or else He wouldn’t have asked us to greet one another. To say hello is probably one of the warmest and easiest acknowledgements we have the privilege of sharing with one another. It’s a small interaction that makes a big impact. It can make a person feel warm and welcome. Let’s be grateful God has given us the good sense to greet one another by saying hello; we just might get one in return.
So as you prepare to go, don’t forget to say “hello.”
In God, I will keep on thanking Him for giving me the grace to say “hello.” By Hertistine Washington / keeponthanking,com
