TREATING OTHERS FAIRLY MATTERS TO GOD

JAMES 5:6

6You have condemned and murdered the innocent one, who was not opposing you.


5: 6   The “innocent” were defenseless persons, probably poor laborers who suffered at the hands of wealthy landowners. Poor people who could not pay their debts were often thrown into prison or forced to sell all their possessions. At times, they were even forced to sell their family members into slavery. With no opportunity to work off their debts, poor people often died of starvation. God called this murder. Hoarding money, exploiting employees, and living self-indulgently will not escape God’s notice. Generous and fair treatment of people who are poor and others who depend on us matters to God.

Tyndale. NIV Life Application Study Bible


ON HTE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and make sure that you treat ALL others fairly! even to the extent of treating your enemies fairly as GOD expects CHRISTIANS to do.
