Favoritism

"For God does not show favoritism." Romans 2:11 (NIV)

This is the basic teaching of both the Old and the New Testament. As I am constantly striving to be more like Jesus I often find myself stumbling over this verse. Whether in church, with my friends or even with my family, it is real easy to create a pecking order in my mind, showing favoritism towards some and being critical towards others. I often find myself judging others by their looks, intellect, talent, skill, personality or nationality, rather than seeing them from God's perspective. However, to disrespect the creation is to accuse the Creator of faulty workmanship. In this day and age we tend to overlook the common-folk while gazing at those who are beautiful, rich, popular or in a high position. This is not how Jesus was when he walked the earth and not how we should be today.

God, please help me to see others through Your eyes. Give me Your love for those that I simply cannot stand. Help me to treat all with respect and love. Amen
