Jim Class: Favoritism

After James encourages believers to put their faith into practice, he gives them 3 examples. The first is to keep a tight rein on our tongues – a topic he will return to in chapter 3. The second is that we should be engaged in helping people who are outcasts or marginalized – like orphans and widows. The third example is illustrated in more detail: don’t show favoritism. In James 2:1-10, James warns against favoritism, gives an example of what it looks like, then explains why it doesn’t make sense in light of the Gospel.
