Does God Play Favorites?

1 Tim 5:21 “I charge you in the sight of God and Jesus Christ and the elect angels, to keep these instructions without partiality, and to do nothing out of favoritism.”

Do you follow the same instructions given to Timothy? This question is one we must look in the mirror to answer. Who wants to see a bum off the street walk into their service? Are you frustrated by the disruption of a crying baby? Maybe the boss in the corner office doesn’t need your witness because he’s too important or has too much money. Who do you NOT share the Good News with? Why not? What are your prejudices?

This post is an excerpt from my book Ask James one.
