Note: This post is part of the James challenge where I encouraged everyone to read through the book of James (chapter per day) and to summarize each chapter in their own words and then give themselves a personal application step for the day. To follow is what I put. Please feel free to comment with your own summary and application point as well.
7/7/09 James Chapter 2
1. So many times we judge people by their outward appearance…do they have money, are they good looking, dress nice, etc. What is even worse is when we give people special treatment just because of one of the above. God doesn’t operate that way and wants us to love all people equally. James also tells us to “walk our talk”. It’s not enough simply to believe soemthing or say we believe soemthing, we prove we truly believe by our actions.
2. Today as I meet with people and go throughout our community I will consciously see all people as people whom Jesus loves and died for…nothing more and nothing less. Then if presented with an opportunity I will share that with them.
