In recent local TV news, my husband and I watched the breaking news about one black man and the police. The police mistakenly shot an unarmed black man. The reasons why police shot him were hardly to blame, and a lot of people protested and stood up to yell in public. I asked my husband about this, we both were not certain about how this already happened. However, the judge in a court had time to think carefully and seek better justice. What I see about the recent local news is unbelievably unpredicted. My Sisters and Brothers, respecting and treating everyone equally and be fair to each other should be part of the mature Christian roles.
Some Christians sometimes disrespect others in the cause of “choosing” or “favoring” some people, but is that what the Lord wants? No, I am sure that the Lord does not like that. He expects us all to respect each other humbly and equally because that’s how we are growing maturely in our Christian character, which helps others see our grace and return the respect. So let’s learn what the Lord encourages us and memorize these important verses about respecting and treating everyone equally. Most importantly, this will be how we lead others to Him.
7 Bible Verses About Respecting and Treating Everyone Equally
- For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. (Romans 3:23, NLT).
- In every nation, he accepts those who fear him and do what is right. (Acts 10:35, NLT).
- I solemnly command you in the presence of God and Christ Jesus and the highest angels to obey these instructions without taking sides or showing favoritism to anyone. (1 Timothy 5:21, NLT).
- From one man, he created all the nations throughout the whole earth. He decided beforehand when they should rise and fall, and he determined their boundaries. (Acts 17:26, NLT).
- But if you do what is wrong, you will be paid back for the wrong you have done. For God has no favorites. (Colossians 3:25, NLT).
- Look beneath the surface so you can judge correctly. (John 7:24, NLT).
- We love each other because he loved us first. If someone says, “I love God,” but hates a fellow believer, that person is a liar; for if we don’t love people we can see, how can we love God, whom we cannot see? And he has given us this command: Those who love God must also love their fellow believers. (1 John 4:19-21, NLT).

Thank you, Joyce, for taking on this timely topic. There are so many disagreements flying over our heads in conversation and in the media. It’s tempting to drive a stake into a position and defend it with victory as the goal, but we lose so much in that process. May God help us to see the people we disagree with, people who are different from us, as souls, much loved by God.
This is a great collection of verses. laurensparks.net
Yes, it makes a big difference to remember that all people are equal and made in God’s image and when we treat them like that.
Thanks for these 7 verses – it is an important topic and one we must bear in mind what the Scripture says too – After all, Jesus treated everyone equally and with respect.
