God's favourite - Lent 17
It is hard to imagine that God could have favourites. A favourite prophet; a favourite king; a favourite man or woman of faith; a favourite nation. Yet it seems that way when we read Psalm 17:8:
"Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings."
David has some experience of being loved by God and perhaps he has felt like God's beloved. Whether this passes as being a favourite or not, I don't know. Perhaps we are all God's favourites! One thing remains though - God loves us and desires to protect us "as if we are the apple of his eye!"
May you experience the overwhelming love of God today.
May you imagine God smiling down upon you, as you seek to honour His name.
Living in Grace
