The Father Doesn’t Have Favorites

From time to time my children will ask me if I have a favorite.  The honest answer is that I love each of them equally.  Naturally, they desire my attention and love. There are times when they seek attention and love more frequently than at other times. Spending more time with me does not make them my favorite, but in that time together we build closeness.

The love of God is similar: God does not have favorites, but he does have “intimates.”  Those that seek out his attention and spend more time with him will experience greater closeness. As a child of God, you have a special relationship where you can experience God’s love.  Are you one of God’s intimates?

The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.Psalm 145:18
