Equality must be maintained

So yesterday in my Bible schedule (following Grant Horner’s system), I read James 2. Then today Ed M.’s devotional speaks of treating everyone equally, based on 1 Sam 30.24.

The principle of equality must be maintained. “All will share alike” is a watchword in the kingdom of heaven. Every member of the Church is “baptized by one Spirit into one body,” I Corinthians 12:12,13. Endowed with a diversity of functions, all members contribute to the same purpose.

Focus question: What gift do you have in the body of Christ? What gift do you desire? Why? What does your desire say about your motivations?
