Today we read:
-Food for thought day 121-
• James 2:1-6
God hates prejudice. When we have prejudice in dealings with people, it’s a sign we’re not functioning in God’s love.
The Bible says: “MY BRETHREN, pay no servile regard to people [show no prejudice, no partiality]. Do not [attempt to] hold and practice the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ [the Lord] of glory [together with snobbery]! For if a person comes into your congregation whose hands are adorned with gold rings and who is wearing splendid apparel, and also a poor [man] in shabby clothes comes in, And you pay special attention to the one who wears the splendid clothes and say to him, Sit here in this preferable seat! while you tell the poor [man], Stand there! or, Sit there on the floor at my feet! Are you not discriminating among your own and becoming critics and judges with wrong motives? Listen, my beloved brethren: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and in their position as believers and to inherit the kingdom which He has promised to those who love Him? But you [in contrast] have insulted (humiliated, dishonored, and shown your contempt for) the poor. Is it not the rich who domineer over you? Is it not they who drag you into the law courts?”
James 2:1-6 AMPC
We must not have prejudices in our dealings with men, because God’s Word admonishes us to love our neighbors as ourselves.
The way we will love to be treated, we should treat others the same.
Remember, walking in God’s love is loving your neighbors as yourself.
Many blessings in Jesus’ Name.
