So when Peter says God has no favourites, how do we understand that? How do we really feel about it? Do we truly believe it?

Dear Parishioner,

“You’re Special!”; “You’re my favourite!” “You’re the only one!” You can’t beat that feeling when someone says that to you!  It can make your day! It can even be a life changing moment too! 

So when Peter says God has no favourites, how do we understand that?  How do we really feel about it? Do we truly believe it? What does it mean to not favour one particular person over another? Is this where the divine becomes something beyond our comprehension but not necessarily beyond our reach?

When Peter says God has no favourites what is he saying?  He is saying that for God we are all special, we are all unique and there is no distinction.  God Loves us because he made us and fashioned us in his own likeness and image.  Scripture constantly teaches that we are all precious in the eyes of God. God doesn’t overlook anyone or not see anyone.   Trying to grasp that actual reality, that actual truth, is very difficult for us humans because we find that so hard to do, no matter how hard we may try.

 We humans don’t really get it because we don’t truly know how to treat every person, no matter who they are, what they look like, and where they come from,  as unique, as special and of value.  We can do it for a few or many but not every single person we come into contact with.  That’s why being VIP is so important.  Having places where you will be given the VIP treatment and get extra privileges etc.  We create settings where knowing the right people becomes very important.  

But today let’s remember those who have never known what it means to be noticed, valued or told they are special and unique! You’d be surprised how many there are out there!  Let’s find out who they are and be the one who changes their life forever!

In Christ,
