Love All People
James 2:1-8

1 As believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ, never think some people are more important than others.

2 Suppose someone comes into your church meeting wearing nice clothes and a gold ring.

3 Suppose you give special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say to him, “Please have a seat.”  But you say to the poor man, “Stand over there,” or “Sit on the floor at my feet.”

4 What are you doing? You are making some people more important than others, and with evil thoughts you are deciding that one person is better.

5 Listen! Hasn’t God chosen the poor in this world to be rich in faith?  Aren’t they the ones who will inherit the Kingdom He promised to those who love Him?

6 By favoring the rich, you have mocked the poor.  And, correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t it the rich who step on you while climbing the ladder of success?  And isn’t it the rich who take advantage of you and drag you into court?

7 Aren’t they the ones who slander Jesus Christ, whose noble name you bear?

8 Indeed, if you keep the royal law prescribed in the Scripture, Love your neighbor as yourself, you are doing well.
