7/19/14 Daily Devotion

Ephesians 6:9 And masters, treat your slaves in the same way. Do not threaten them, since you know that he who is both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no favoritism with him.

What’s wrong with favoritism? This format, this devotion, is not long enough to walk through all the reasons that favoritism is bad, so we shall put some emphasis on the main reason. Favoritism, especially within the Christian spectrum, carries the giver and the receiver into a direction that is not Godly. When we elevate others up, purposefully, to a place of honor, we are honoring them instead of God. When we show them favoritism, we are usually doing so in the seeking of personal benefits and/or recognition. There is nothing wrong with showing appreciation for a job well done or an accomplishment that has been fulfilled, but there is something wrong if it is done for the wrong reason. Everything we do should be done to glorify God and edify His children. Is that your goal. Is that your purpose?

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me know how to show appreciation towards others without expressing any favoritism.
