From Abraham and Sarah—who welcomed three strangers and prepared a meal for them—to Luke and Paul—who accepted generosity when shipwrecked on the island of Malta—Scripture is filled with stories of hospitality. Welcome! Give and Receive God’s Great Love invites children to discover God’s amazing love through the stories of God’s people. They demonstrated kindness, made friends, and took care of those who were hurt. They reflected the love of a God who welcomes and cares for each of us.
