WITHOUT PREJUDICE OR PARTIALITY

In almost every country today, there is prejudice and partiality. Prejudice is an irrational hostile attitude, fear, or hatred towards a particular group. Prejudice and partiality can be shown towards or against people of a particular race, color, country of origin, or ethnic group. Prejudice and partiality may be shown to men or to women, to the old or to the young, and to the poor or to the rich. If you are different from others in some way, you may be the subject of prejudice and partiality. The apostle Paul was instructing Timothy, and he gave the following charge:

I charge thee before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality. (1 Tim. 5:21)

Prejudice is not just a modern occurrence; it has been happening for thousands of years. The ancient Egyptians disliked people who were shepherds. Joseph warned his brethren about this in Genesis 46:33-34:

And it shall come to pass, when Pharaoh shall call you, and shall say, What is your occupation? That ye shall say, Thy servants' trade hath been about cattle from our youth even until now, both we, and also our fathers: that ye may dwell in the land of Goshen; for every shepherd is an abomination unto the Egyptians.
