Proverbs 3:3 Do not let kindness and truth leave you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart. 4 So you will find favor and good repute in the sight of God and man.

Believers often refer to favor. They want favor on their lives, favor on their children, and favor on their jobs. Favor is God using people somewhere to use their power, their ability, and their influence to help us.

Favor is great and it’s available for anyone who can have faith for it, but how about being the favor? Favor works through people. It’s God inspiring people to be a blessing to someone else. Instead of always looking for favor, how about being the favor?

We can be that person who takes a friend out to eat, be that person to pay for the groceries of someone we don’t know, or help someone get a job where we work. All it takes is us listening and being sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s promptings. Our flesh will tell us we don’t have the time or the money to be the favor for someone else, but He wouldn’t tell us to do something we couldn’t do.

Just remember, as we’re led to be the favor for someone else, God promised to reward us.
