Favoritism

February 19, 2009

Sometimes I wonder if we in the church are as shallow as the dog-eat-dog culture we live in?  This may seem harsh, but I think that sometimes we are guilty of this. Have you picked up a Christian magazine lately? Well neither have I, but I have a feeling that we would find a commonality with “secular” magazines. i.e. – pretty people make the cover and all the ads. Our culture puts such an emphasis on beauty and outward appearance, and I am afraid that the church is following suit. 

 Then Peter began to speak: ” I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts men from every nation who fear him and do what is right.” Acts 10: 34-35 

What do you think? Do we often push those people out of the way? I think about who Jesus hung around, and who Jesus chose to be his disciples. Is it possible we have strayed from the example set by Jesus himself?
