A Daily Devotion for Thursday, June 15

Leviticus 19:33-34

"When a foreigner resides among you in your land, do not mistreat them. The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the Lord you God."

Through Moses, God instructs the Israelites, warning them against racism and prejudice. Suspicion and mistrust of those who are different probably goes back to the beginning of time. Appearance, language, customs- all of these things can make a person from another culture suspect. But God reminds us; we were once strangers. We may have experienced this while traveling. How wonderful it is to be treated with a warm welcome or a helping hand as opposed to a suspicious glance!

Holy Lord, help me to ba a welcoming and kind presence. Help me to remember this especially when I meet someone who is "from away". Amen
