Pride may negatively distort your Christian relationships through favoritism. “My brethren, do not hold your faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ with an attitude of personal favoritism.” Example: “For if a man comes into your assembly with a gold ring and dressed in fine clothes, and there also comes in a poor man in dirty clothes, and you pay special attention to the one who is wearing the fine clothes, and say, ‘You sit here in a good place,’ and you say to the poor man, ‘You stand over there, or sit down by my footstool,’ have you not made distinctions among yourselves, and become judges with evil motives” (Jas 2:1-4)? Yes. “He who oppresses the poor to make more for himself, or who gives to the rich, will only come to poverty” (Pro 22:15).
