1 My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.
2 For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment;
3 And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool:
4 Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?
James 2:1-4 KJV
In church we always want to look our best;
We’ve got our Sunday-go-to-meeting clothes,
But there’s a fellow that’s so poorly dressed
His only suit’s so worn his elbows shows.
I promise you someone in church will gasp,
Will roll their eyes, then whisper to a friend.
Don’t be the one to shun the poor man’s grasp;
Please don’t compare him to the latest trend.
The Savior doesn’t see a rag from gloss;
A tattered shirt’s the same as Vera Wang.
It all is level at the bloody cross;
He only wore our sins when He did hang.
A judging heart is evil at its best;
See all alike and you’ll be surely blessed.
