Twelve or so years ago, my daughter and I were at a sandwich shop grabbing some lunch. She was pregnant and was close to her delivery date and had some concerns, and I had just gotten news about some medical test, so we were both worried. Two ladies began conversing with us, seeming to see the worry on our faces. Interestingly, one was pregnant, and the other was my age and had both experienced similar situations to what we were going through. They assured us that we would be fine, consoled both of us, and relieved us of our worries. We were in Brandon, a fairly small town, so we know a lot of the churches, especially the big ones, and we see many of the same people around town. We had never seen these ladies before. They told us that they went to a big church and sang in the choir, pointing towards First Baptist of Brandon, but didn’t say the name of it. We found that to be odd. Then they disappeared as quickly as they appeared. My daughter and I concluded that angels had visited us. For this reason, we must be kind to others because you never know when you might be entertaining angels. I’ve had one other encounter; you don’t forget it; they leave a lasting impression.
Let brotherly love continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. Hebrews 13:1-2
