(Proverbs 28:21 KJV) To have respect of persons is not good: for for a piece of bread that man will transgress.
God has no place for “respect (5234) of persons (6440)” (partiality NASB). We forget that this cuts both ways. The poor are not noble, but neither are the rich.
Being impartial is not the same thing as being indiscriminate. It used to be that discrimination was a valuable character trait. Thus you might have a discriminating palate. That meant you knew good food from greasy spoon productions. The word fell out of favor when it began to be modified by adjectives that changed the reasons for making choice, such as “racial discrimination.” Perhaps a more accurate phrase would have been “racial partiality.”
“Partiality” (5234/6440) infers that you are using personal standards to judge value. This is okay in choosing the restaurant you want to visit tonight. It is not acceptable in deciding who gets to live in your neighborhood. Discrimination is the legitimate decisions we make based on experience and wisdom. Thus it is wrong to exclude someone from your apartment because of skin color but right to refuse to rent to a pedophile.
So? There are reasons to make decisions. Make sure that you don’t judge people on grounds that are not Biblical. Let experience, interpreted by wisdom and led the by the Holy Spirit be your guide.
