love your brothers

 love your brothers
james1,2
 
   1: My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.
   2: For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment;
   3: And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool:
