“My Brothers, show no partiality as you hold the faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of Glory.” - James 2:1
I’m guilty of this. I’m partial to a lot of things.
I prefer Blackberry preserves over grape jelly. I like wheat bread over white bread. I like frozen yogurt more than I like ice cream. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. But when it comes to our brothers and sisters in humanity, partiality is a sin.
If we show partiality to others – we do it for a reason. More often than not it’s because we have acted like a judge in some way. We make a judgements about who they are, where they come from, their social status, their influence, or even as of late – their Klout score.
We judge people on what we see, instead of what in their hearts. Not cool.
