Rich and poor have this in common: The LORD is the Maker of them all.
Proverbs 22:2 NIV
In this world people look each other by their status, titles and positions in life. We tend to respect rich people more than the way we respect poor ones. People who have monetary power tend to make all decisions even if they don't have expertise in some field of life.
In the church we fail in the same trap of respecting some people more and despising others. The Bible teaches us that God is no respecter of persons. Our God looks us equally; He has given us Jesus that He may come to save us all. (Acts 10:34)
The writer of the book of Proverbs says rich and poor have this in common. The LORD is the Maker of them all. God created all of us, whether you are rich or poor; He made us and one day all of us will meet together before Him. He is going to judge us according to what we did in the flesh whether good or bad.
This morning, I want to encourage you to respect all people in your life. For young women who are waiting for husbands to marry them; they need to stop focusing on money and start asking for God fearing men. Likewise men should stop focusing on the outward appearances but asking for God fearing women.
We need to learn to respect each other and love each other in Christ Jesus. We need to learn to be kind to people in life because everyone is having a tough in this life. Don't rush and judge people but ask the Lord to give you wisdom to understand all people who come in your life every day.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Father, help me to respect all people who come in my life knowing that we are equal before You. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
