Wrapping up James 2:1-4


So, we're finishing up the first two weeks of memorizing the second chapter in the book of James, which says...

My brothers and sisters, believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ must not show favoritism. Suppose a man comes into your meeting wearing a gold ring and fine clothes, and a poor man in filthy old clothes also comes in. If you show special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say, “Here’s a good seat for you,” but say to the poor man, “You stand there” or “Sit on the floor by my feet,” have you not discriminated among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts? - James 2:1-4 

Sounds pretty simple, right? Don't show favoritism. Embrace the rich, the poor, the people in between. Welcome everyone and make everyone feel welcome. Over the next few verses James continues to expand on what he's teaching here. So I'm just going to let that sink in for now and dig into it fully later, after going through the next week.  

Besides, my brain isn't up to giving words to write today anyway and it seems silly to force it to happen. No need to ramble on.
