“But glory, honor and peace for everyone who does good: first for the Jew, then also for the Gentile. For God does not show favoritism.” Romans 2:10-11 (NIV)
Our GOD lays down an important life value for us through the above verse, “GOD DOES NOT SHOW FAVORITISM” yes, our father has no bias. Cultivating relationships that seem beneficial to oneself is very common in the world. People surround themselves with people who can give them back something for all the time they have spent on them. Most of the people focus on what they can get out of a relationship, rather than focusing on what they can give. This is the norm of the world.
Whereas, Christ Jesus says, glory, honor and peace is for everyone who does good and is not partial towards anyone. We are to love everyone with the SAME LOVE, and have ONENESS OF MIND. the bible says in Philippians 2:1-4 “Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, 2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. 3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.”
So, let us be like our GOD. we have nothing to gain from our worldly pursuits of being accepted, appreciated or seeking popularity among our friends circle, it will all fade away. All our gain is in our Christ Jesus. He wants us to be people who are fair, just and loving to all, not showing favoritism and not using people for our benefit. May GOD help us to be a blessing to others. May our heart go out for all in need of compassion, love and mercy.
