Deuteronomy 1:17 Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; but ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment is God’s: and the cause that is too hard for you, bring it unto me, and I will hear it.

As God instituted judges in Israel He gave them strict instructions to hear and treat all the same. They were to all get justices. They were to treat the foreigner with the same respect they treated those from their own nation.

They were to treat rich and poor alike. They were not to be impressed or intimidated by the big name guys.

I have always found it intimidating when I am around people with more money. They cause me to want to be a man pleaser. You may have that problem as well. The truth is that we are to treat all people with the same respect.

God is a God of justice and expects us to learn from that great truth!
