The Sin of Partiality

1 1My brethren, 2do not hold your faith in our 3glorious Lord Jesus Christ with an attitude of 4personal favoritism. 2 For if a man comes into your aassembly with a gold ring and dressed in b5fine clothes, and there also comes in a poor man in 6dirty clothes, 3 and you cpay special attention to the one who is wearing the 7fine clothes, and say, "You sit here in a good place," and you say to the poor man, "You stand over there, or sit down by my footstool," 4 have you not made distinctions among yourselves, and become judges 8with evil dmotives? 5 Listen, 9my beloved brethren: did not 10God choose the poor eof this world to be 11rich in faith and 12heirs of the kingdom which He 13promised to those who love Him? 6 But you have dishonored the poor man. Is it not the rich who oppress you and fpersonally 14drag you into gcourt? 7 15Do they not blaspheme the fair name hby which you have been called?
