What is it that causes God to pour out the firstborn blessing on a secondborn child? What moves God to elect someone for His glory? Many believe it’s up to random chance, but Jesus told us what causes God to bless.
It’s not how well you speak, who your father is, how rich or poor you are, or where you grew up. It’s something much more significant. God prefers to use those of a certain character, even sometimes those who are lost and weak.
So we need to ask ourselves what is the character God delights in? And “is my character one that God delights in?”
