My brethren, do not hold your faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ with an attitude of personal favoritism. For if a man comes into your assembly with a gold ring and dressed in fine clothes, and there also comes in a poor man in dirty clothes, and you pay special attention to the one who is wearing the fine clothes, and say, “You sit here in a good place,” and you say to the poor man, “You stand over there, or sit down by my footstool,” have you not made distinctions among yourselves, and become judges with evil motives? Listen, my beloved brethren: did not God choose the poor of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him? But you have dishonored the poor man. Is it not the rich who oppress you and personally drag you into court? Do they not blaspheme the fair name by which you have been called? If, however, you are fulfilling the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing well. But if you show partiality, you are committing sin and are convicted by the law as transgressors.
One of the things I like about contemporary church is the casual dress code. Not because I mind getting dressed up (I like pretending to be James Bond as much as the next guy) but because I hate shopping for suits. I have never had a good experiance buying one. Maybe I just don't look I belong in the store, after all I'm a shorts and tshirt kind of guy every day of the year.
There have been many times I wished I could have pulled a Pretty Woman on them, but in the end they just always made me feel out of place and unwelcomed.
God does not have time for that and nither should we. In God's eyes everyone is equal and they should be in our eyes as well. No matter the clothes we wear or the skin we have, rich or poor, big or small, young or old, all should be equal in our sight and in our treatment.
