James 2:6-10

But you have dishonored the poor. Is it not the rich who are exploiting you? Are they not the ones who are dragging you into court? Are they not the ones who are blaspheming the noble name of him to whom you belong?

If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, “Love your neighbor as yourself,”[a] you are doing right. But if you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers. 10 For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it.

One response to “James 2:6-10

  1. Our natural tendency is to gravitate toward those in power and with wealth so that we can gain. But the true commandment of God is to love our neighbors as ourselves, or to work hard to take care of and prosper and provide satisfaction.

    If we care for the rich in hopes of what we can gain, we are not obeying or honoring God.
