Stop Playing Favorites
Scripture: James 2:1–7
In this next section of the book of James, the author is going to raise the perennial problem of playing favorites, and he will ask us to take a hard look out ourselves.
In essence, James says that when we discriminate and show partiality based on something as superficial as someone's appearance, we are denying something fundamental about the Gospel of our Lord Jesus.
This will be a good check up on our spiritual condition, and a reminder to root everything we do--including the way we relate to those who are different from us--in the Good News of Jesus.
