We started a series all about being aware of the people around us. It is titled: "I see you"
God creates, knows, loves, and sees all of us in our full humanity. But as people, we can fall into the habit of assuming everyone is the same or everyone is like us. While we share a common humanity, these assumptions can be harmful and prevent us from truly seeing other people and listening to their perspectives. By looking at Biblical stories, this series will help us learn how to listen to, respect, affirm, and act for and with others. In doing so, we can also come to know God even more fully.
This week we take a look at how hospitality has always been part of the covenant relationship that God has had with people, and how it forms part of our Christian mandate. All people want to be loved and cared for, everyone needs to belong - and into this Jesus sent his disciples (and His Church) to Love people. Read along in Matthew 25:34-40, Galatians 5:14 and Deuteronomy 10:17-22 as we explore the importance of respecting the strangers around us.
Ps. strangers are simply people who have not yet become friends/family.
