TOPIC: The Dangers Of Partiality (III) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 13 December 2022)

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Esther 6, Esther 7, Esther 8, Revelation 4, Psalm 142:1-11

FIRE SCRIPTURE: Genesis 27:6-17 (KJV)

6 And Rebekah spake unto Jacob her son, saying, Behold, I heard thy father speak unto Esau thy brother, saying,

7 Bring me venison, and make me savoury meat, that I may eat, and bless thee before the Lord before my death.

8 Now therefore, my son, obey my voice according to that which I command thee.

9 Go now to the flock, and fetch me from thence two good kids of the goats; and I will make them savoury meat for thy father, such as he loveth:

10 And thou shalt bring it to thy father, that he may eat, and that he may bless thee before his death.

11 And Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, Behold, Esau my brother is a hairy man, and I am a smooth man:

12 My father peradventure will feel me, and I shall seem to him as a deceiver; and I shall bring a curse upon me, and not a blessing.

13 And his mother said unto him, Upon me be thy curse, my son: only obey my voice, and go fetch me them.

14 And he went, and fetched, and brought them to his mother: and his mother made savoury meat, such as his father loved.

15 And Rebekah took goodly raiment of her eldest son Esau, which were with her in the house, and put them upon Jacob her younger son:

16 And she put the skins of the kids of the goats upon his hands, and upon the smooth of his neck:

17 And she gave the savoury meat and the bread, which she had prepared, into the hand of her son Jacob.

MEMORY VERSE: “And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him.” – Genesis 37:4

Christ’s love planted in the family through prayer and Bible study will uproot the tree of of partiality.

Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit

Any seed of hatred, envy and discord planted in your family is uprooted now, in the Name of Jesus.

MFM Devotional For Today 2022 MESSAGE:

Partiality, discrimination and favouritism all exist in families and homes. Again, God condemns every form of partiality in families. This is because the family is the main socializer; and if this evil is allowed to get entrenched in homes, it will spread to the larger society and cause a lot of damage. So, today, we will turn our attention to the family.

God strongly warns against parental favouritism. This is because it usually births envy and rancour, leading to disunity in the family. It also suppresses the talent of some children and makes some to shy away from social interactions due to loss of self-esteem and confidence. Finally, it turns siblings against one another and causes unhealthy competition. Genesis 25:28 reveals that Isaac loved Esau, because of the venison but Rebekah loved Jacob. Due to parental favouritism, Rebekah and Jacob connived and robbed Esau of his blessing. This led to hatred and enmity between Jacob and Esau. Jacob did not fully fulfil his destiny until he had reconciled with God and Esau, his brother.

Parental favouritism which Jacob exhibited to Joseph made his brothers to hate him (Genesis 37-4). Their hatred and envy drove them to sell Jacob into slavery, causing several years of separation and sorrow for Jacob, their father. When there was famine and Jacob had to send his sons to buy food in Egypt, he did not allow Benjamin (Joseph’s brother) to go with them. Again, it was because he loved Benjamin specially and he said, “Lest some calamity befall him.” Jacob’s greater love for Joseph and Benjamin were the fall out of his greater love and favour he had for Rachel. He loved Rachel more than Leah. These two sisters who were married to Jacob had their own share of wranglings because Jacob loved and favoured Rachel more. Truly, parental favouritism always leaves a sour taste in the mouth of those who practise it.

Dear parent, I counsel you to always pray and obtain God’s wisdom and help that will make your parenting a huge success. Show equal love and care to all your children. Recognise that they will differ in talents, achievements and time of fulfilment. Heed God’s admonition in 1 Timothy 5:21, “Without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality. God bless you, in Jesus’ Name.



  1. Spirit of parental favouritism, I banish you from my family, in the Name of Jesus.
  2. Spirit of envy and hatred, I bind and cast you out of my family, in the Name of Jesus.
  3. Sibling rivalry, my children are not your candidate, die, in the Name of Jesus.


  1. My children shall not be sold into slavery, in the Name of Jesus.
  2. I receive the wisdom to make my parenting a huge success, in the Name of Jesus.
  3. My Father, forgive me of the instances that I have been partial in my dealing with my children, in the Name of Jesus.
  4. Father, help me to train my children in Your way and let them become vessels unto honour in Your house, in the Name of Jesus.
