This week during Teatime, God had his way! We had a good ole time talking about the favor of God! If you missed it, please watch the video inserted in this blog.
Ladies... when God gave me this topic, I did not know how I was going to break it down and create an encouraging message, but you know how God is. God always makes a way. What is the Teacher’s Pet Syndrome? The best way I can explain this syndrome is by reminding you what it used to be like in my school days.
The Teacher's Pet Syndrome
When I was a child, some specific students received the favor of their teacher. When this would occur, the other students would ridicule these students due to jealousy. The students with favor would suffer because all they wanted was peace when they went to school. This made some students fight back. I have seen students change who they were and how they acted towards their teacher to fit in with the crowd over walking in the favor that they had.
Teachers Pet Syndrome- is receiving the favor of your teacher and being picked on because of it (defined by life experiences 😊)
Favor- an act of kindness beyond what is due
Does this sound familiar to you? We tend to do the same thing to God. God is the greatest
Teacher of all. When we become a child of God, we receive His unmerited favor. It is nothing that we can do about that. This unmerited favor brings on suffering from the world. We get talked about, pushed away, lied about, and anything else that this world can think to do to us.
Listen… God does not want us to back down from being who we are called to be. We are not students who do not understand who we serve. We are not powerless women who can not stand in faith. God has given us his favor! Do you know what favor does? Let me remind you!
Favor Does things like...
