Scripture is clear: loving strangers is a biblical mandate to anyone who follows Jesus. Throughout the Old and New Testaments, God specifically commands his people to practice hospitality. He tells the Israelite’s to “love the stranger” like they love themselves—reminding them that they, too, were once strangers: Jesus talks about the hospitable behavior of those who will inherit the kingdom: “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; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me” (Matt. 25:34–36, NASB, emphasis mine).
When a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the native among you, you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. I am the Lord your God (Lev. 19:33–34, ESV).
