God has called us to be like Him in every way and thus our faith can never be partial.
Even though knowingly or unknowingly we may often categorise and look down upon some people, God never shows partiality and that is one of the best things about Him.
Probably we might have experienced the blessedness of God's acceptance when everyone else might have rejected us or might have looked down upon us.
" but if you show partiality, you commit sin, and are convicted by the law as transgressors. " James 2:9 (NKJV)
God not only hates partiality, but rather classifies it as sin and sin always separates us from God, thus by being partial, we might often think that we are making ourselves safe, whereas the reality is that we are making ourselves unsafe by this sinful act and are drifting away from God's favor and blessedness.
The Lord has always been applauded for strengthening the weak and caring for the needy...
"He raises the poor out of the dust,
And lifts the needy out of the ash heap,
That He may seat him with princes—
With the princes of His people." Psalm 113 :7-8 (NKJV)
Let us pray that the Lord may help us to be like Him and never hurt anyone with the sin of partiality, rather let us bless them who need us and extend to them the great love we have received.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
