Lenten Devotions

Tuesday, March 22
“For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who is not partial and takes no bribe, 18 who executes justice for the orphan and the widow, and who loves the strangers, providing them food and clothing. 19 You shall also love the stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.”
--Deuteronomy 10:17-19

Our culture can often be one that seeks safety and security for ourselves—often at the unnecessary expense of others. This is not to say that we shouldn’t be careful, but rather that we need to consider if our carefulness is actually helpful or harmful. Are we protecting ourselves, or are we hiding behind that façade so we don’t feel guilty about not doing something that is needed by others? Listen to the classical music player as long as you like. As you do, meditate on those areas of life that we as a society tend to avoid, consider the necessity of this avoidance, and ponder the meaning of hospitality.
