James 2:1-13 – “Dealing with Favoritism”

Pastor Wes gives us a great background picture of what the culture and atmosphere of the early church James was writing to was like, specifically speaking about the honor system and how they viewed each other in society. This directly relates to favoritism and how they placed value on the brothers and sisters around them. For us, we should not give favor to those who have wealth or material possessions nor should we assume their riches come from ill gotten gains. Instead we should strive to build unity with one another, rich and poor, because we have a oneness through Jesus Christ.
