Here’s a continuation of my series on the Topical Guide in which I try to find scriptures with unusual meanings. I came across an interesting verse in Hebrews 13:2.
Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
Usually when we think of angels, we think of spectacular visitations (Angel Moroni, Gabriel visits Mary, angel strikes John the Baptist’s father speechless, etc.) On the other hand, there are some encounters where people did not perceive angels (angels visit Sodom and Gomorrah, the story of Jacob’s ladder.) What is the purpose of God sending angels to us where we are unaware of them? Have you any stories of “angels unawares”?
