James continues giving tests of genuine faith.  This passage describes the test of our treatment of others.  As Christians we should not show favoritism or prejudice.

1.  Treat others with Humility - Remember we are all human beings with dignity as creations of the Lord of glory.
2.  Treat others with Equality - Regardless of obvious differences people should be treated equal in love, respect and value.
3.  Treat others with Royalty - The Royal Law is to "love your neighbor as yourself".

This is the bottom line principle: treat others as you would want and expect to be treated and as you are treated by God.

Walk with the Lord and resist respect of persons!!!
