As an immigrant I’ve been viewed as a foreign woman. In Ezra 9 the foreign women were cast away. At times I feel like those women who were pushed aside and discriminated against.
However, when we live out the gospel message, we realize that God does not cast us away. God embraces each one of us. Those of us who look different, who speak differently, dress differently, think differently, or who even may appear foreign to others.
God welcomes and embraces all of us. I believe we ought to do likewise.
