"[your name], you bring your full presence and attention to certain members of the community but offer diminished presence to others. Those who have stature, wealth, and charisma, those you find interesting or charming or pretty or famous command your undivided attention, but people you consider plain or dowdy, those of lesser rank performing menial tasks, the unsung and uncelebrated are not treated with the same regard. This is no minor matter to me, [your name]. The way you are with others every day, regardless of their stature, is the true test of faith."
(from Abba's Child by Brennan Manning)
