Welcoming Strangers

Scripture tells us to welcome strangers. “Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.” (Hebrews 13: 2) How exciting is this? Do you suppose any of us have entertained angels without knowing it? I believe this Scripture reflects the heart of our Lord. Everywhere He went he exercised the trait of hospitality. Consider how many of his miracles and stories involved strangers that He gathered to eat, drink and share with each other. In the context of gathering He then ministered to them physically and ultimately spiritually. Do you welcome strangers and more important, do you take opportunities to minister to the needs of those around you?
