Jacob teaches that those who have treated others poorly—due to a misguided mindset where wealth and achievement are evidence of being superior to others—are acting sinfully in God’s sight. He then provides the reason why this is so.
“…The one being is as precious in his sight as the other. And all flesh is of the dust; and for the selfsame end hath he created them, that they should keep his commandments and glorify him forever.” (Jacob 2:21)
-How many treat others in a way that is consistent with the truth that every person is equally precious in God’s sight?
-What kind of spiritual power comes into a person’s life when they consistently repent to the standard of thought and conduct provided by this verse?
-Do you believe that the highest path in life (and the greatest source of joy and peace) is to glorify God?
