9/9/14 Daily Devotion

James 2:9 But if you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers.

Why is favoritism wrong? The act of favoritism finds us utilizing a selection process that puts worth or value on people. While, on the surface, this does not seem to be a big deal, it is detrimental in many ways. Favoritism places people into unnecessary categories. We all understand that there are people who can perform certain tasks while others do not have the ability, but they still have worth. We all understand that there are people who can be of benefit to our lives, while there are also those who can just be present, but they still have worth. Everyone has worth. Everyone has value. Everyone is important. Favoritism is a sin because it devalues one person and values another. Favoritism is a sin because it devalues that which God believes is valuable.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me see ALL people as You see them.
