Equal Opportunity Employer

"He causes the sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous."
Matthew 5:45

God is an equal opportunity employer. His word says he "so loved the world that he sent his only begotten son" (John 3:16); it does not specify race or social status.  Sometimes when I watch the birds, their impartiality amazes me. Their streamlined bodies grace the branches of the gnarly, dead tree as well as the boughs of beautiful blossoms. Squirrels ferret about in unkempt yards with the same zeal they use for trimmed ones. A cat may purr with content in the lap of a homeless beggar as well as those from fine society. They, like God, look upon the heart. So should I.
