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

As Christians, we are to be imitators of  Christ.  We are to follow His lead in how to deal with people we come in contact with daily.  This requirement of impartiality towards others is displayed throughout the Bible…making it very clear, “God does not show favoritism.”  Partiality  and bias are easy traps to fall into,  unless we make a conscious decision to follow the pattern of Jesus instead.   For if you boil favoritism down…all you get is the ugliness of bigotry and prejudice.
