Show no partiality as you hold the faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
We cannot make judgments and distinctions based on external considerations. Judgments and distinctions can be favorable or unfavorable; either way, it is wrong. Partiality and prejudice are the two sides of discrimination. Partiality discriminates in favor of a person. It is when we give the best seat to the wealthiest person (James 2:3a). Prejudice is when we discriminate in fear of a person. It is when we tell the poor person to sit away from us (James 2:3b). Instead of partiality or prejudice, “hold the faith” and see all people as parallel.
Pray to eliminate feelings of partiality or prejudice.
