SHORT DEVOTIONAL: Favoritism hurts!

Whether in the family, school, workplace, and even among close friends, FAVORITISM HURTS. The only time you will not feel the hurt is when you are among the favored ones. The Apostle James (2:1-8), in his epistle, warns us (especially those in AUTHORITY) to avoid the foolishness of favoritism, lest we fall into the trap of sinful judgment and evil thoughts. To be in authority is a responsibility. It is not an exclusive right to play God to any one. Take advantage of every opportunity, but never take advantage of people. To be in authority is all about helping and developing people to move up the spectrum in the context of fair play. A person in authority is a person ready to make sacrifices for all, not just for a selected few.
