belittling

Monday May 30th, 1 Kings 18: 41 “Likewise when a foreigner, who is not of your people Israel, comes from a distant land because of your name 42 —for they shall hear of your great name, your mighty hand, and your outstretched armThough it may not be popular in today’s political circles, the welcoming of the stranger is one of the central tenants in our faith.  We are called as the children of God to welcome them with outstretched arms.  Walls do not welcome.  Burdensome laws do not welcome. Name calling and belittling do not welcome. The voice of the children of God is to be welcoming and through that welcome letting the other know they are a child of God.  Somehow the process also lets us know we too are the children of God.
