Somebody's been sleeping in my bed

It's a little annoying but always a bit funny when my cats stretch out their legs to grab the side of their baskets and refuse to get in. This usually happens when some other kitty has been sleeping in their beds and they just don't smell right. This always leads to a linen change, Lol!
Contrary to this, should I leave any washing out or if the wash basket is open, they won't hesitate to get stuck into my washing and snuggle down. All this is due to a cats association with smell. My washing represents me, so therefore makes them feel close to mommy, while their own linen being dirty represents an invasion of their territory.
We tend to treat people in the same way. A new colleague at work, a new kid on the playground, a new neighbour in our complex, may all be treated with coldness at first due to our inherent dislike for new people in our space. The sad thing is that we may even apply this in Christian circles with a new member of a home fellowship group.
What does the bible tell us about how we should treat strangers? Well the parable of the good Samaritan is a good example, he took care of a foreigner. We are also told that we should welcome and be generous to strangers as in so doing we may well minister to Angels and receive blessings from their presence.
Let's welcome people into our space this week and prove the fruit of kindness in our spirit.
