Get the Picture, and Get Everything!
What happens in a family when someone is the favorite?
They get everything.
It’s the same with God. I’m His favorite. And so are you!
My husband and I have been married 32 ½ years. Recently, we were in a jewelry store, and I thought it would be really neat if my husband gave me the 30th wedding anniversary gift. Good things some to those who wait, I just thought. Traditionally, it is pearls, and the modern gift is diamonds!
We walked into the jewelry store, and I said, "I'm here to get my 30th wedding anniversary gift. A little bit—2 ½ years behind, but good things come to those who wait."
Of course, the jeweler knew my husband. He’s quite, well…frugal. He made my husband a really great deal. The store was very busy, so I was taking my time, looking around at some other things that caught my eye. I had put something aside that I was going to buy myself.
But remember, I'm his favorite. And what happens when you're the favorite? You guessed it—you get everything!
The store owner gave it to me. He literally gave it to me, free of charge. My husband’s jaw dropped. I just looked at him, and said, "I'm God's favorite!"
When you really get a picture of who you are in Christ, it changes you. You are his workmanship, and when you realize that, you begin to act different. You talk different. You start treating others different, and they start treating you different.
You are God’s favorite, just like me. Get the picture, and get everything!
