"all the best"

Numbers 18:12

All the best of the oil, and all the best of the wine, and of the wheat, the firstfruits of them which they shall offer unto the LORD, them have I given thee.
The Lord said to Aaron, "All the best... and all the best... them have I given thee."

This isn't to a person who's better than other people, or has done anything good to deserve any good. This is to the one He chose, in His own mercy, to set His Love upon.

The Lord, in His great Love and kindness to us, isn't secretly keeping back something for Himself that would be good in any way for us. Instead, as He has promised, He gives us (and even gave up, on the cross, as Jesus Christ,) "all the best."
