Welcoming new people into our lives routinely is a part of Love, as Jesus showed. In His ministry, He loved those who were strangers. He welcomed those He did not know. We too must welcome and pray for everyone, even those who harm us or hurt us. We do not need to let them harm us, but if they do we are to forgive them and not retaliate. Welcoming new people is our way to show Jesus we have listened to Him and Love All - as He does!
