Christian compassion for the immigrant



Sadly lacking, if social media is anything to go by....



And yet -


When a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.






For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me,




Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.




Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all who are destitute. Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.





The native people showed us unusual kindness, for they kindled a fire and welcomed us all, because it had begun to rain and was cold.
