Carter and Ian have the crystals! But it took some convincing from Ian to get Carter to trust the circus master/lake monster, Chad. Carter said he couldn't trust Chad because of the way he looked and where he lived. Often, we as Christians will meet people who are different than us. Some people grew up differently than you, look different than you, and may even act different than you. The Bible has something to say about the way we should act with people like this in James 2:1-5. These verses say, " My brothers, show no partiality as you hold the faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory. 2 For if a man wearing a gold ring and fine clothing comes into your assembly, and a poor man in shabby clothing also comes in, 3 and if you pay attention to the one who wears the fine clothing and say, “You sit here in a good place,” while you say to the poor man, “You stand over there,” or, “Sit down at my feet,” 4 have you not then made distinctions among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts? 5 Listen, my beloved brothers, has not God chosen those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom, which he has promised to those who love him?" These verses show us that Jesus would want us to not treat people who look different or act different than ourselves poorly, because he loves those people and wants us to show love to them also. So next time you meet someone who is different than you, just remember that Jesus loves them
