Then they sent to him some of their disciples and some members of Herod’s party. “Teacher,” they said, “we know that you tell the truth. You teach the truth about God’s will for people, without worrying about what others think, because you pay no attention to anyone’s status.” (Matthew 22:16, GNB)

If we are to follow Jesus’ example, then there can be no place for racism or favoritism (or any other “ism”) because he paid “no attention to anyone’s status” and neither should we.

The gospel of Jesus Christ is a message for all people of all races in all times.  It says that despite who you are, whether rich or poor, influential or not influential, white or black, man or woman, you are a sinner and Jesus died for your sins.

If we take the attitude of Jesus, then we will be able to preach the gospel “without worrying about what others think.”
