God Doesn’t Have Favorites ~ Sunday Devotional
“Then Peter began to speak: “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts from every nation the one who fears him and does what is right.” Acts 10:34-35 (NIV)
Jew or Gentile. Peter realized that God didn’t favor one over the other. He loved them all. He sent His Son to die for them all. He sent people to share His Word with all of them.
It’s the same with you and me and the stranger we encounter.
None of us are God’s favorite.
He loves us all the same.
He sent His Son to die for you and for me and the stranger.
We are all worthy in His eyes.
I imagine you’ve felt like an outsider a time or two in your life. Left out, not accepted by a person or a group.
I’ve felt it.
We live in a society of social circles, small groups, clubs, etc.
But God accepts us all into His circle.
His circle is big enough for you and for me and for that one who is a stranger to us.
It’s easy to stand on the outside of someone’s life and think that God has favored them in some way.
Instead of looking at someone else’s life, let’s keep our eyes on our own life, and on our own paper, and keep things between us and God.
His arms are open to you. He accepts you. His invitation is open to each and every one.
There’s room at His feet for all of us.
