Top Ten Tuesday: X is for Xenial

Top Ten Tuesday

Xenial is not exactly a common word.  Yet, we expect each other to be xenial on a daily basis.

The Merriem-Webster dictionary says,

Xenial (adj.) of, relating to, or constituting hospitality or relations between host and guest

I first encountered the word xenial in elementary school when I read Lemony Snicket’s The Slippery Slope. He writes,

“Xenial’ is a word which refers to the giving of gifts to strangers. . . . I know that having a good vocabulary doesn’t guarantee that I’m a good person. . . . But it does mean I’ve read a great deal. And in my experience, well-read people are less likely to be evil.”

No matter which definition you prefer, I think you would agree that reading and applying God’s Word will make you more xenial.  The following ten verses are a good place to start.
