Hebrews 13: 1-3

From a certain perspective, the truth is that we are all sojourners in a land that does not belong to us but, ultimately, to God. Since this is so, we are reminded us that those baptized into the death and the resurrection of Christ are to acknowledge with gratitude God’s ongoing favor to us who are only sojourners, and the responsibility we have to care for others.
