As a mother of three daughters, Amy had to be sure that she never showed favor toward one daughter above the others. Joking about this was never an option in her early years of parenting, and she has continued to take this seriously as they have grown through each season of life.
Showing favoritism can be deadly for relationships. When favoritism is shown, this can lead to anger and frustration. The result can be feelings of low self-worth on the part of the person who has borne the brunt of being left out and overlooked. This is not pleasing to God.
God loves all His children equally. God has no favorites. God created each one of us in His image, and He created all of us to be in a relationship with Him.
We are to love everyone with the same love that God exhibits to us. Favoritism has no place in the church. As Christians, let’s make sure that our hearts are open toward everyone with whom we come into contact.
