But are not those who are called to be ministers of the gospel exempt from this

obligation? "A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behavior, given to hospitality." 1 Tim. 3:2. " A bishop must be... a lover of hospitality." Titus 1:7, 8.

Upon whom should hospitality be bestowed? "Use hospitality one to another." 1 Peter 4:9. "As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith." Gal. 6:10.

Should hospitality be exercised to those who are our enemies? "If thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink." Rom. 12:20.
