The most succinct bible verse about welcoming others that springs to mind is Romans 15:7, in which the believers are told to welcome one another, as Christ has welcomed them. In Romans 12:13, followers are told here to contribute to others' needs and be welcoming, or show hospitality.

  • Matthew 25:34:36
In this verse, Jesus invites followers to inherit the kingdom because they gave food to the hungry, drink to the thirsty and welcomed strangers. Peter 4:9 urges believers to show hospitality, or be welcoming, to one another cheerfully, without grumbling.

  • Hebrews 13:2
This verse urges readers to be welcoming to strangers, as one of them may be an angel in disguise. Leviticus 19:34 is a verse that speaks about treating strangers as friends and loving them as oneself, in other words making them feel welcome.

  • Titus 1:8
Here a list of qualities a believer should have are listed. They are: Loving what is good, being upright and holy, disciplined, self-controlled and, first of all, hospitable, or welcoming, while Acts 28:2 is devoted to praising natives who were particularly welcoming.

  • 1 Timothy 3:2
This again lists a range of qualities a person, in this case directed at an overseer, should display. It states that he should be above reproach, sober-minded, respectable, self-controlled, able to teach and hospitable, or welcoming.

  • 1 Timothy 5:10
This discusses what a woman should do to enter the kingdom of heaven. Being welcoming, or showing hospitality, is one of the things listed.

  • Mark 9:41
Here those who are welcoming to others are promised a reward, as is also the case in Matthew 10:40-42, where Jesus goes through a list of rewards in accordance to the people welcoming is extended to.

Luke 6:27- 36 tells of how believers should treat everyone

27 “But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. 29 If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them. 30 Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. 31 Do to others as you would have them do to you.

32 “If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do that. 34 And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, expecting to be repaid in full. 35 But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. 36 Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.
