“and I was a Stranger, and you…”

These are the words of Jesus …

I was a stranger, and you invited me in … Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, Lord when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in? … And the King will answer and say to them, Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to me” – Matthew 25:35-40

In my work with World Relief Minnesota, these verses have taken on more meaning. The refugee certainly is included in the category – the stranger. When Jesus is asked what is the greatest commandment in the Law, He responds by saying love the Lord with all you being, and the second is like it “Love your neighbor as yourself”. Do see refugees as our neighbor?

In the future, I’ll be blogging about refugees and immigrants on the World Relief Minnesota website.
