God of the Refugee

Matthew 2: 13-14, the holy family receives divine instructions to flee Israel and seek refuge in Egypt--

"13 Now after [the wise men] had gone away, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph, saying, “Get up, take the child and his mother and flee to Egypt, and stay there until I tell you. For Herod is about to seek the child to destroy him.” 14 So he got up and took the child and his mother during the night and went away to Egypt."

When we welcome today's refugee into our home land, we welcome Christ.
