James 2:1 ” My brothers, as believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ, don’t show favoritism.”

Last night our small group Bible study had quite a lively discussion on discrimination within the Church.  We tend to be most comfortable at Church when everyone looks and acts like us.   Our prejudice surfaces when someone outside that “mold” ventures into the Sanctuary seeking the Lord.  Yes, they may not look like you…they may not have the same values or mores…but they are still a Child of God searching for the truth.  We need to extend to them the same love that Jesus did…not judging,  but supporting and encouraging as the Holy Spirit moves in their life.
