Galatians 3:28  There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female – for all of you are one in Christ Jesus.

This list could go on.  What it is saying is all people are equal in God’s eyes.  He loves each person equally.  He gives salvation equally to each one who accepts His Son, Jesus.  He expects the same for us.  We tend to judge people by several standards: dress, speech, economic level, job, religion, nationality and on and on.  Our judgements vary with our moods and our experiences.  Our question is since God sees us all equally who are we to deligent different importance or treatment or esteem to other people?  Next time you see someone homeless or in any way different from you remember God loves them as much as He loves you.  We must learn to put away our judgements and prejudices and give each person the respect, regard and love of God through the renewing of our minds with God’s Holy Spirit.  After all, it is only by the grace of God that we are who we are.
