No Partiality

If you have understanding, hear this; listen to what I say. Shall one who hates justice govern? Will you condemn him who is righteous and mighty, who says to a king, ‘Worthless one,’ and to nobles, ‘Wicked man,’ who shows no partiality to princes, nor regards the rich more than the poor, for they are all the work of his hands? In a moment they die; at midnight the people are shaken and pass away, and the mighty are taken away by no human hand.
Job 34:16–20

No Partiality
We live in a world today which thrives in separating people. It wants to pit one class against another, rich against poor, strong against weak, male against female, black against white.  And the sole reason for this is to sow seeds of bitterness and contempt.  To create a system where there are those with power and those without.  And because of our myopic vision we only see a world in which we are a part of we fail to understand God’s vision is so much greater.  He is not swayed by the wealthy.  They cannot buy salvation. Their wealth is a gift from God in the first place.  The powerful on earth still must kneel at the throne of God, their power exists as long as God allows it to. And these arbitrary differences we sinful humans set up are quickly seen as a farce in the light of death. No matter who you are, death is a reality all must face. It skips no one.  In light of this reality all should see that God does not advantage some over others based on human ideas of success and privilege.  For the poor and the rich alike God sent His Son Jesus Christ to die.  Jesus took the sins of the strong and the weak with Him to the cross.  For men and women alike Christ suffered the abuse of the cross.  For every shade of skin color Christ laid in a tomb. For the whole world, when that tomb was opened on the third day, it was found empty. No partiality was shown in Christ’s atonement.  He died for all!
