This portion begins with a lovely description of Abraham's hospitality to visitors who arrive unannounced at his door.  Of course, in today's world if strangers arrive at our home we would almost certainly NOT invite them in, but there are other ways in which we invite new people into our lives.  According to Will Rogers, a famous American humorist, "A stranger is just a friend I haven't met yet."

  1. What do you think Will Rogers meant by that statement?
  2. What does that tell you about the kind of person he probably was?
  3. Where do you meet most of your friends?
  4. How do you decide whether someone you meet will become a friend or not?
  5. In what ways do you reach out to make new friends?
  6. Is a 'friend' on Facebook the same as a 'friend' in real life?  Explain your answer.
  7. How is the internet a good place to meet new people?
  8. How is face-to-face a good way to meet people? 
Abraham's guests turned out to be very important.  You never know if the people you meet are going to play a role in your future or not.  It's a good thing Abraham welcomed the strangers to his home - and it can be a good thing for you to welcome new people into your life.
