“Throughout the Bible, we are repeatedly told that God loves and cares for foreigners, and that he expects his people also do so. Jesus himself was a refugee, forced to flee the genocidal government of King Herod; he says that when we welcome a stranger, we welcome him. “The Lord watches over the foreigner, and sustains the fatherless and the widow” (Psalm 146:9 NIV). Refugees are uniquely vulnerable individuals who have fled persecution. Our biblical faith compels us to respond to their plight with compassion and hospitality.” Source:
