That's what our mom would say when we were kids and we knew from training what that meant:
- Clean up your room.
- Help Mom clean the house.
- Help Mom set out the cups, dishes and decorations.
- Put on some nice clean clothes.
- Welcome the guests by looking them in the eyes, shake their hands and say, "Hi, I'm Matt; pleased to meet you."
Then we could go and play - preferably outside, especially if the company included other kids.
Company's coming Sunday - a lot of them, and we have been getting ready to welcome them:
- We have cleaned up our rooms.
- We have cleaned the house.
- We have helped set out the cups, dishes and decorations.
- We will put on some nice clean clothes.
On Easter it will be time to welcome our guests, look them in the eyes, shake their hands and say, "Hi, I'm (your name here); pleased to meet you."
And then see where the Spirit takes your conversation. Easter is an amazing time, better still when shared with a smile and honest welcome.
See you at the welcoming place Sunday,
