Beware of Personal Favoritism

2 My brethren, do not hold the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, athe Lord of glory, with bpartiality. For if there should come into your assembly a man with gold rings, in 1fine apparel, and there should also come in a poor man in 2filthy clothes, and you 3pay attention to the one wearing the fine clothes and say to him, “You sit here in a good place,” and say to the poor man, “You stand there,” or, “Sit here at my footstool,” have you not 4shown partiality among yourselves, and become judges with evil thoughts?

Listen, my beloved brethren: cHas God not chosen the poor of this world to be drich in faith and heirs of the kingdom ewhich He promised to those who love Him? But fyou have dishonored the poor man. Do not the rich oppress you gand drag you into the courts? Do they not blaspheme that noble name by which you are hcalled?

If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, i“You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you do well; but if you 5show partiality, you commit sin, and are convicted by the law as jtransgressors.
