Be sure to welcome people whom you don't know into your life -- even if they are not like you. ~ Hebrews 13:2a (ABP)
The life defined by Jesus is a life of generosity and hospitality.PRAYER:
Lord God, I'm so thankful that you welcome strangers into your life. I'm definitely strange -- especially compared to you. I'm slow to welcome others and suspicious of all who are different. Free me from my paranoia and the desire to hold tightly onto everything I own. Transform me into a gracious and generous follower of Jesus. I'm going to draw on the abundant life that you provide to live generously. Amen.
