Today's Bible Verse:James 2:1
My brothers, show no partiality as you hold the faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory. (ESV)
Today's Inspiring Thought: Show No PartialityIn chapter 2, James gives a strong lesson about the equality of all Christians, ending with this firm admonition in verse 9: "But if you show partiality, you are committing sin and are convicted by the law as transgressors."
We are to treat all believers, rich and poor, with the same respect and dignity. If we show favoritism or give special attention based on a person's financial status, we are committing the sin of discrimination or prejudice. Sadly, this type of preferential treatment is one of the primary reasons many Christians today have given up on church attendance.
