An Equal Opportunity God

"For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality nor takes a bribe." (Deuteronomy 10:17 NKJV) Everyone is discriminated against, in one way or another, at some point in time. It can be frustrating, hurtful, and unfair. It certainly doesn't feel good. However, God is god over everything and everyone. There is none greater than God. And, for better or worse, God shows us amazing mercy and grace, but also just as equally God requires consequences of bad behavior and evil doing. God treats everyone the same. No matter who you are or what you have, "you do the crime, you do the time." When we go before God, everyone is equal. AND, God wants us to act the same towards others. He wants us to treat each other equally, with the same grace, compassion, and love God shows us. God does not want us to be influenced by the ways of the world, base our choices on who has the most and or who can benefit us the most...God wants us to follow a more divine way...His way. Love, Beau
