James 2:1-13 My brothers, show no partiality as you hold the faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory. For if a man wearing a gold ring and fine clothing comes into your assembly, and a poor man in shabby clothing also comes in, and if you pay attention to the one who wears the fine clothing and say, “You sit here in a good place,” while you say to the poor man, “You stand over there,” or, “Sit down at my feet,” have you not then made distinctions among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts? Listen, my beloved brothers, has not God chosen those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom, which he has promised to those who love him? ...
God wants us to love the the people who may not be the most *popular* or may not have the nicest clothes , but the opposite. He wants us to love the people who do not have any friends and who do not have good clothes . My parents(who are the best *SMILE*) have always taught me to find the person in the crowd who looks lonely or depressed ,and go give them a smile or ask them to come sit beside me..It is so much easier to just sit down and be selfish or exclude someone who may not be like you, but only if we would not do that.....God talks so many times in the Bible about serving others and putting yourself last.I am trying every day to be more like Him(although I am not perfect) God help me be more like You!!!
With love ,
