From the beginning of creation, the Bible is very clear in God's intentions that all people are equally deserving of His love and mercy. God created all man and woman equal and Scripture tells us that all life is valuable and worthy. Both Old Testament and New Testament Bible verses reaffirm the truth that no partiality or prejudice belongs among us. God never intended for his people to treat others differently because of their race or gender. We are commanded to love each other and to be a light in a dark world that is filled with anger and hate.
We have collected these inspirational Bible verses about equality to help lead you in a study of understanding God's Word better. Teach these Bible quotes about equality to your children and friends as you seek to display love to others through your words and actions.

26 So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, 27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
1 My brothers and sisters, believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ must not show favoritism. 2 Suppose a man comes into your meeting wearing a gold ring and fine clothes, and a poor man in filthy old clothes also comes in. 3 If you show special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say, "Here's a good seat for you," but say to the poor man, "You stand there" or "Sit on the floor by my feet," 4 have you not discriminated among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts? 5 Listen, my dear brothers and sisters: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom he promised those who love him? 6 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?
