Verse three, “If you show special attention,” maybe he is talking to the ushers or the parking crew back there, I don’t know. This word “special attention” means to take at face value. It means just to look at the external. James says, if you do that, you have messed up. Look at verse 4, “Have you not discriminated among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?” James says that favoritism is wrong. Favoritism is a sin. Discrimination is wrong.
Discrimination is a sin. It should never happen, especially within the body of Christ, especially within the church. Pretty straightforward stuff.
Sometimes when I walk into a restaurant, I love to see those signs that read, “Warning: You have just entered a smoke-free environment.” I love that. I think churches ought to put above their doors: “Warning: You have just entered a snob-free environment.” Don’t you? I am very sensitive to this subject because of two reasons.© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: C3 Global PR
