Valuable People

Today's reading: James 2:1-13

One of the most prevalent, if not the most prevalent, messages that the world puts before us, is that wealth matters. Everywhere you look there are ads and commercials telling us how we need and deserve more. But when you think about it, when we choose to focus on money and make having money our goal, what we're really doing is devaluing people. So I was thankful for James’ reminder that ALL people matter to God regardless of their status, and for James’ prompting for us to follow God’s standards when it comes to our valuing and treatment of people.
