DO NOT HAVE FAVORITES!

James 2:1 – Devotional

James 2:1

“Brothers and sisters, do not hold the faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the Lord of glory, with partiality.”

I have seen families, clubs, Bible study groups, and even churches decimated because favoritism was shown to one or more of the members. Sometimes this has been unintentional, but at other times it was totally intended.

There is a commercial being aired at present where a young boy and girl were choosing who would be on their team. The choices were a retired professional athlete and another young boy. The girl who selected first chose the professional.

Now let us suddenly change the rules of that commercial and make the competition one of mathematic ability rather than professional sport. The young boy just happens to be a genius in math and the pro athlete flunked beginning arithmetic. Now who would have the edge?

Sadly it is very easy to fall into the trap of showing partiality. We should always treat those around us with the love that Jesus has shown to us. As He has so loved and given Himself for us, we need to love and give ourselves to the world through Him!

May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!
