return the favor

Monday April 6th, Acts 10: 34 Then Peter began to speak: "I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts men from every nation who fear him and do what is right.  In the kingdom of God there are no favorites!  Not by choice of faith or fate of birth, no favorites in the Kingdom of God period!  As you go about your business today look around at the people you meet.  Each and every one is a child of God, and called to discover for themselves what that means and how to live as a child of God in this world. Each and every one has a unique story and history through which the story of God can percolate into a glorious gift of beauty for humanity. Each and every one has been saved by the Grace of a loving God.  Each and every one is your brother or sister in Christ and sometimes they, as well as you, are aware of that reality and sometimes they are not, but they never cease to be.  Pray today that you would be able to treat each and every one as a brother or sister, and maybe, just maybe, they will be able to return the favor.  That is part of the Easter Gospel, God's love poured out for all.  Ask God to bless you today from one of these unexpected new brothers or sisters, and then return the favor.
