PAUSE & Read
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.” – Matthew 25:35
PAUSE & Reflect
Welcoming strangers is a basic component of discipleship. Acknowledging this make us more aware both of the strangers around us and also motivates us to reach out and welcome them.
PAUSE & Practice
As you go through the day, look for a stranger in your midst – a new colleague at work, a visitor at church, the person who has moved in down the road. Take the initiative to say hello, reach out with an extended hand, and take an interest in this person.
