"Faye's Daily Words Of Encouragement # 286 Today's Word Is : Stranger"

Definition of the word Stranger: Means an unfamiliar person., one who is ignorant or oblivious to something.

Genesis chapter 23 - 4 : I am a stranger and a sojourner with you : give me a possession of  burying place with you, that may bury my dead out of my sight.

Psalms chapters39 - 12 : hear my prayers, O Lord, and give ear unto my cry; hold not thy stranger with thee, and a sojourner, as all my fathers were.

 Psalms chapter 146 - 9 : The Lord perserveth the stranger; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down .

Matthews chapter 25 - 35 " For i was an hungred and ye gave me meat , I was thirsty and you gave me drink: I was a stranger and ye took me in.

Luke chapter 17 - 18 : There are not bound that returned to give glory to God, save this strnager.

Ephesians chapter 2 - 19 : Now therefore ye are no more starngers and foreigners, but fellow citizen with the saints and of the household of God.

Today's daily words of encouragement word is Stranger:  Which means an unfamiliar person one who is ignorant or oblivious to something. We are all strangers in a foreign land, traveling through, because this is not our home. We meet strangers every day in our lives, but we're suppose to treat them like brothers and sisters in Christ;and we're suppose to extend our hand and help if it's needed.

Most of us don't want to be bothered with strangers, but the bible tells us different. I think the bible warns us about turning strangers away, because we might be entertaining an angel. The best thing we all can do, is be good to everyone and that's including strangers.

      Absolutely right...if we don't open our hearts to become available to others, we very well may be missing the blessing we have asked God for.

      I can't tell you how many times I have had a conversation with a stranger to only find out that they were an answer to prayer....love you hub.

      Thank you Revlady, you're correct, but if we ask God's guidance about the strangers that we meet,so we are aware of who we meet. Thank you for your comment and feedback. Godspeed. creativeone59

      Thank you for a reminder to try to love all people, it,s difficult sometimes when you see how people live and not attempt to help themselves, but who are we to judge.

      Love and Peace

      I agree that we should be kind to everyone, including strangers. Yet, in these times in which we live, it would also behoove us to be stay spiritually alert and cocvered by the armor of God, for many strangers are evil.

      Peace and joy,

      Forever His,
