not a respecter of persons

Then Peter opened his mouth and said: "In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality. But in every nation, whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him."I was praying for my children today to increase in their discernment and hearing the voice of the Lord. When I was young, and new to hearing the Lord speak to me, and knowing it was Him speaking (LOL) I remember that fear that said “God isn’t interested in speaking to me. I can’t possibly hear His voice; that is for great and important people.” I learned from the Scripture NOT to fear. It simply isn’t true, first of all, because God shows no partiality to great and important people. His definition of who is great and important is often (always?) not the same as ours anyway.
