Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly.
This scripture is a continuation from yesterdays thoughts. Even in churches, we see favoritism. It may be unspoken, but it's still in the air. Aren't we a bit more proud when we have a sanctuary overflowing with doctors, lawyers, and business men and a little more ashamed when we have many lower class, poorer, members? Don't we approach and welcome those who most fit our mold of what a church-goer should look like? God doesn't care what our occupation may be and He doesn't care if we are dressed in the latest styles. What He does care about is what is on the inside. Leave your judgements and opinions at the door and don't let them into your hearts. And of course, always remember that looks can be very deceiving!
