Favor seems to be a recurring theme in my circle these days. Favor is something that God chooses to bestow upon us that we cannot earn by our own merit, solely because we are children of God; this is very similar to our biological parents buying us gifts “just because”. Additionally, there are those times when one child gets something while another does not and there is no apparent rhyme or reason to why that is. I come to offer an alternative in how we think about this whole experience.
As individual offspring of God, our minds are the mini-me’s of God’s, meaning that God’s thoughts are higher than our own. So in essence, we may never know why God chooses to bless one and not the other with a specific gift(s). However, the truth is that we are all connected, and what God does for one of us, is indirectly done for all of us by virtue of the connection. We are all blessed to be a blessing to those that we are connected to…so to keep one’s blessings to themselves is to deny the purpose of the blessing and to disobey God. I admonish us all to never covet someone’s else blessings, and conversely to never allow our blessings to only benefit self. When we are all raised to this consciousness, the world will be a much better place to be. And so it is…
