All the names are in the same family register. One may have more grace than another, but God our Heavenly Father has the same tender heart towards all. ~Charles Spurgeon
Growing up, I got a lot of mileage out of being the middle child. When Mom went shopping with my older sister, I would say, “I’m just the middle child; I’ll stay home.” When Dad took my baby brother to an auction, I would say, “I’m just the middle child; I’ll stay home.” This was usually enough leverage for an invitation to tag along.

God loves His children equally, too. Melodie was given the beautiful gift of hospitality. I'm a writer, and my brother Craig is a pastor. Birth order isn't important to God. Whether we’ve been “reborn” twenty years ago, ten years ago, or just last week, we are children of God through our faith in Christ Jesus.
God, with His tender heart, reaches down to that third world country, to the country club, the jail cell and to my childhood home -- and proves His declared, impartial love by offering eternal life.
