Most of couldn’t imagine physically robbing other people of their possessions. Yet, many times we fail to consider that we are capable of stealing dignity and personhood. We can rob other people of their true designation as image-bearers, when we play favorites. James 2:1–9 illustrates the robbery of showing partiality. We counteract this by cultivating a Christlike empathy, allowing the prejudicial places in our hearts to be moved by compassion.
