God Does Not Play Favorites

ROMANS 2:11 GWN 11 God does not play favorites.

God does not show favoritism. Several other translations say "there is no partiality with God."

God does not practice discrimination with people, favoring one above another. All of us have equal opportunity to receive God's help and blessing. God loves everyone, but allows us to choose whether to seek Him, or not.

Six times the Bible tells us that God does not show partiality or favoritism.

2 CHRONICLES 19:7 NLT 7 Fear the LORD and judge with integrity, for the LORD our God does not tolerate perverted justice, partiality, or the taking of bribes."

ACTS 10:34 NLT 34 Then Peter replied, "I see very clearly that God shows no favoritism.

ROMANS 2:11 NLT 11 For God does not show favoritism.

EPHESIANS 6:9 NLT 9 Masters, treat your slaves in the same way. Don't threaten them; remember, you both have the same Master in heaven, and he has no favorites.

COLOSSIANS 3:25 NLT 25 But if you do what is wrong, you will be paid back for the wrong you have done. For God has no favorites.

1 PETER 1:17 NLT 17 And remember that the heavenly Father to whom you pray has no favorites. He will judge or reward you according to what you do. So you must live in reverent fear of him during your time as "foreigners in the land."

God does not favor one person over another. Everyone has an equal opportunity to receive God's blessing. No one is excluded. The choice is ours. What God has done for others, He will also do for you.

ROMANS 1:16 NLT 16 For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes -- the Jew first and also the Gentile.

REVELATION 22:17 NLT 17 The Spirit and the bride say, "Come." Let anyone who hears this say, "Come." Let anyone who is thirsty come. Let anyone who desires drink freely from the water of life.

SAY THIS: God loves me just as much as He loves anyone.
