Christmas is a holy time for all who follow Jesus, and ideally it is also a time of great joy and celebration with loved ones. Too often, though, the holiday season is one of deep sadness, longing, grief, and stress.
“When a foreigner resides among you in your land, do not mistreat them. The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the LORD your God.” (Leviticus 19:33-34)
