If we are not careful it is easy to discount the value of people that are not like us or to give preference to rich and influential people over the poor and unknown. It must have been a problem in the early church too since James took time to warn them against doing that in the church and it is a relevant message for us today. When we learn to see people the way God sees them, we will enjoy greater relationships and be better able show Christ-like love. Some awesome people have made life commitments that make them seem poor, some who seem rich are miserably in debt and none of us choose our true skin color. Be encouraged to connect with all the people God brings across your path and see the great potential you both share together in Jesus. Pastor Chris Teien.
