Read James 2:1-13
- Why do you think the Lord has such strong feelings about favoritism? What is the underlying root sin in this?
- Can you see ways that you have personally, or we corporately, have insulted the poor?
- Again, like in 1:22, James describes the law as giving us freedom. How does experiencing this freedom allow us to extend mercy to others? How are they connected?
- Ask the Lord to show you situations or areas of favoritism in our body, during our service, or in other areas of ministry. Are there areas of favoritism in your life that the Lord has shown you?
