There has been a lot going on in the news about the aliens who soujoirn in our country. In spite of what the bible clearly states(i.e. to care for the poor, feed the hungry, etc) many Christians tend to contradict God's commands by protesting against welcoming the stranger on our land.
This was a daily devotional sent to me today that is just one of the many scriptural reminders of caring for all, especially the unwanted refugee, or illegal alien.
He will rescue the poor when they cry to him; he will help the oppressed, who have no one to defend them. He feels pity for the weak and the needy, and he will rescue them. He will redeem them from oppression and violence, for their lives are precious to him. (Psalms 72:12-14 NLT)
God cares for the needy, the afflicted, and the weak because they are precious to him. If God feels so strongly about these needy ones and loves them so deeply, how can we ignore their plight? Examine what you are doing to reach out with God's love. Are you ignoring their plight or are you meeting their needs?
