February 2 – Walking the Line

Playing favorites is always a bad thing; you can do great harm in seemingly harmless ways. Proverbs 28:21 MSG

I am partial. I like the fall better than the dead of winter or the height of summer.

I like vanilla ice cream over chocolate. And I like a basketball court best of all when there are wrestling mats from wall to wall.

Yes, it’s true, even with people, I tend toward certain ones and shy away from others.

What’s funny is, I don’t like to think of my “partiality preferences” as favoritism. In my mind, that sounds too much like prejudice. I can see there is a difference between what I prefer and whom I choose to favor over another. But if I am not walking in wisdom, the line that separates the two can quickly disappear.

May my desire to treat all men as brothers and live wisely before them assist me in the “differentiation” process.
