Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
1 John 4:18-21
There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. We love because he first loved us. If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother.

So Peter opened his mouth and said: “Truly I understand that God shows no partiality,”
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
1 Corinthians 2:9
But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”—
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple;
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
2 Kings 2:23-24
He went up from there to Bethel, and while he was going up on the way, some small boys came out of the city and jeered at him, saying, “Go up, you baldhead! Go up, you baldhead!” And he turned around, and when he saw them, he cursed them in the name of the Lord. And two she-bears came out of the woods and tore forty-two of the boys.
When a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong.
1 Peter 4:9

Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.

But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you. For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the just.”
1 Timothy 5:10

The native people showed us unusual kindness, for they kindled a fire and welcomed us all, because it had begun to rain and was cold.
Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.
For truly, I say to you, whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you belong to Christ will by no means lose his reward.
