My brothers and sisters, show no partiality as you adhere to the faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ. For if a man with gold rings and fine clothes comes into your assembly, and a poor person with shabby clothes also comes in, and you pay attention to the one wearing the fine clothes and say, “Sit here, please,” while you say to the poor one, “Stand there,” or “Sit at my feet,” have you not made distinctions among yourselves and become judges with evil designs? Listen, my beloved brothers and sisters. Did not God choose those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the Kingdom that he promised to those who love him? Jas_2:1-9
So, if you’re not, beloved, be poor (in mind), so that you may be rich in Spirit. And if you are poor in life, know that you can, if you so choose, be rich in the love you have to offer those who are rich in life but poor in love. In all states, we are one in union with the Love of God, through Jesus our Lord and Savior!
