I. Introduction:

A. Wealth makes friends (Proverbs 14:20 and Proverbs 19:4).

  1. People love gift givers (Proverbs 19:6-7).
  2. Think about the power one has when they have much to offer (Proverbs 18:16).
  3. Some love to have the ability to gain the admiration of others and wield that power of influence over them (II Peter 2:18 and Jude 1:16).
B. As God’s people, we ought to be opposed to partiality [favoritism] (I Timothy 5:20-21).
  1. Godly wisdom is impartial and produces peace (James 3:17-18).
  2. Like Jesus, we should be known even by our enemies as being those who do not accept the person of any (Luke 20:21).

II. Body:
“To have respect of persons is not good: for for a piece of bread that man will transgress” (Proverbs 28:21).

A. It is not good to be a respecter of persons (Proverbs 24:23).
  1. The Law of Moses taught this (Leviticus 19:15, Deuteronomy 1:17, and Deuteronomy 16:19).
  2. As does the Law of Christ (James 2:1-13).
  3. Woe to them (Isaiah 5:22-23).
B. God does not respect persons (II Chronicles 19:7, Romans 2:11, Colossians 3:22-25, and I Peter 1:17).
  1. God is just (Deuteronomy 32:4).
  2. God expects mankind to do justly (Micah 6:8).
C. Consider how those given to respect of persons can be bribed (Amos 5:7-12).

  2. The root cause is wickedness (Proverbs 17:23).
  3. Think about the guards at Jesus’ tomb (Matthew 28:1-15).
D. God has given us information and instructions that, if properly employed, will keep us from having a respect of persons. Remember, we are fully equipped through God’s word (II Timothy 3:14-17).
  1. We are all the offspring of God (Acts 17:24-30).
  2. How we look at our brethren (Romans 12:9-10; 12:16).
  3. Love our neighbors (Romans 13:8-10).
  4. Applying God’s point of view (Galatians 2:1-6).
  5. Esteeming other better than self (Philippians 2:3-8).
  6. Speak evil of know man (Titus 3:1-3).
