As parents and grandparents, we make sure that we give all our children and grandchildren the same amount for birthdays and Christmas. We want them to know they are all loved the same. Do you have a favorite child? grandchild? Do you have one that has excelled higher than others? Do you have one who has caused you more heartache than the rest? I guess it is our human nature to show favoritism according to the good people have done. It is really something to think about when you say God has no favorites. Regardless of who you are, what you have done, what you have not done, or who you are going to become, God loves us all the same. We are all on the same level with God. (Romans 4:16 Therefore, the promise comes by faith, so that it may be by grace and may be guaranteed to all Abraham’s offspring, not only to those who are of the law but also to those who have the faith of Abraham. He is the father of us all.) The Bible says the Jews were God’s chosen people. Does that mean He loves them more than us? NO! It means God chose them as the people through which the gospel would be spread throughout the world. God now has chosen the church for that purpose. Don’t compare yourself to someone else and think God loves them more than He loves you. The purpose God has for them may be different than your purpose, but God loves everyone the same. God gave us all the same gift. (Romans 10:13 For, everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.) He gave us Jesus! Pastor Don [image: image.png]
