“He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the foreigner residing among you, giving them food and clothing.”
Deuteronomy 10: 18
“Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed….”
When we help people in need we are actually doing the will of God. We don’t need to ever doubt that.
And notice the foreigner is mentioned here and that God loves them. Today we use the word immigrant.
Even though most people different from us have a different culture and may have a different faith, God wants us to realize they have value and that He will provide for them! He loves them!
I wonder if God would use you or I? If someone from another country came to your door in need, would you help them? Or would you call the police to have them removed?
It is God, the Lord Almighty, the King of All the Universe, that says yes to the immigrant. Do we do the same?
Lord God give us a heart for all people! Amen.
