“And the king will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’” (Matthew 25:40)
Having just experienced the Christmas season, it is easy to see the parallels in Ola and Omar’s story in “Not home yet” with the birth of our Savior. Jesus was a refugee too, born in Bethlehem, in a manger, with no room in the inn. And then we read Jesus’ words in Matthew 25, that when we welcome the stranger, we welcome Jesus.
