Teaching of the Ba'al Shem Tov, quoted in The Judaic Tradition p.44 (edited for gender neutrality)
The principle of equality is of major importance. This means that every person should be equal in a person's eyes whether that person lacks knowledge or whether he knows the whole Torah. How does one attain this attitude of equality? It is attained by constantly clinging to God, for out of a constant concern to cling to God, one has no time to think of other matters.

Suggested Discussion Questions:

Do you agree that "constantly clinging to God" is the best way to see every person equally?
