Valuable People

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: James 2:1-13

One of the most prevalent, if not the most prevalent, messages that the world puts before us, is that wealth matters. Everywhere you look there are ads and commercials telling us how we need and deserve more. But when you think about it, when we choose to focus on money and make having money our goal, what we're really doing is devaluing people. So I was thankful for James' reminder that ALL people matter to God regardless of their status, and for James' prompting for us to follow God's standards when it comes to our valuing and treatment of people.

When it's apparent that someone is quite wealthy, or that someone is extremely poor, how does it impact your thinking? Does the way someone is dressed, the car they drive, the home they live in, influence how act around and toward them? What helps you keep God's perspective about people (loving and valuing them) front and center rather than the what the world would have us believe? Tami

When we get to know people of various statuses, we find out that people really aren't that different from one another. Good built us with the same kind of core. The accessories are different by design, but the foundation is the same.
