PAUL WAS GIVING A SERIOUS CHARGE TO TIMOTHY! In 1 Timothy 5 he wrote; “I charge you before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ”, and as if that wasn’t enough, “the elect angels.” What was this serious command? “That you observe these things without prejudice, doing nothing with partiality.” Paul was commanding the church that they should not give preferential treatment to some people. Every person is equal in God’s sight. So if Christians give special treatment to some, then they are misrepresenting God. Jesus loves all of us. He doesn’t have any favorites, and we should follow His example. Treat every person with love, regardless of their station in life. To do less is to offend our Lord, Jesus Christ.
