:the one where they might be jesus:

last week, sarah opened her door to find a traveling salesman. she invited him in, told him she was not planning to buy a vacuum cleaner and that in fact, because her baby was asleep upstairs, he couldn't turn on his demo model, and then she offered him a cup of coffee. he asked why she was offering him coffee, when she wasn't even going to let him show her the vacuum cleaner, and she said it was because she worships a god who has said that he may be found in any person, any near or far neighbor, any prisoner or beggar on the street, any guest. 
"so i'm offering you coffee because you might be jesus."

let us be open to His presence today.
