PostSubject: Something To Think About   Tue Sep 27, 2011 1:25 pm

We all might have a favorite shirt. We might have a preference when it comes to the particular car we choose to drive. Everyone has a favorite song, a favorite food or a favorite book. Most of us usually have a favorite vacation destination as well. However, there are some things in our lives that we typically have no control over when it comes to favorites. For example, I have two children, Ross and Gina, both of whom I love very much and would never dream of choosing my favorite between the two. This brings me to the point of my writing today.....

As Christians, we all see God as our heavenly Father. He shows no preferences and loves us all equally. God even sent Jesus, His only son, here to earth in order to teach us the ways of a perfect love. Jesus Christ lived upon this earth for 33 years and displayed a true and perfect love to everyone....with no exception! I feel confident to say that God would never show partiality to any of his children. In Romans 2:11, we are told, FOR THERE IS NO PARTIALITY WITH GOD. Galatians 2:6 also tells us that GOD SHOWS NO PERSONAL FAVORITISM TO NO MAN. Doesn't it feel good to know that the God of all creation loves you just as much as He loves the next person? Isn't it wonderful to know that God chooses no favorites?

Why then, do we tend to pick and choose. What gives us the right to encourage one brother or sister in Christ, but ignore the next? How will we justify our actions when the much awaited day of judgement finally arrives? I did not write this as an attack on any one person in particular, that is not and will not ever be my style. I wrote these words after much observation.... in our churches, in our stores, in our families...even on Facebook. We all need to remember that our God will hold us accountable for every single act we have ever committed. We claim to be Christians....let's act like it! Let's encourage one another in true brotherly love. Let us be Christlike in ALL of our ways.

Acts 10:34 God is no respector of persons



Love,
M

I especially connected with this one. It seems human nature is to "pick a favorite." I tend to pick the underdog in any situation, but that isn't right either. All were created equal! Thank you for such an insightful message Big Smile

This spoke to my heart today with regard to a current situation. God-inspired message to be sure. Thank you!
