The Rich and the Poor

My Christian brothers, our Lord Jesus Christ is the Lord of shining-greatness. Since your trust is in Him, do not look on one person as more important than another.  What if a man comes into your church wearing a gold ring and good clothes? And at the same time a poor man comes wearing old clothes. What …

Be Rich in Good Works
