Regular family worship provides an opportunity to testify to the truth and power of the gospel to guests in your home. When showing hospitality neighbors, friends or family, the regular rhythms of family worship should not be abandoned. If it is an established pattern in your home, then it will be natural to engage in it even with guests present. This should be handled wisely and humbly so as not to come across in a self-righteous or condemning way. A simple question can often suffice to avoid this. “We normally take a few minutes at this time to read the Bible, sing and pray as a family. Would you mind if we do that together?” When families regularly worship God in the home and regularly practice hospitality, this opportunity will regularly present itself.
