Psalm 16

O my soul , you have said to the LORD, ‘You are my Lord!
My goodness does not extend to you, but to the saints that are in the earth,
and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.’
Psalm 16:1–2

This was the Son, talking to the Father and confessing that the Father is so great that there was nothing he (the Son) could do to make Him greater.  The only thing the Son could do was make the Father happy, and this he did by loving and blessing those on earth whom the Father loved.
It is the same with us and the Son.  Jesus has been “exalted above the heavens” and is “most blessed, forever.”  There is absolutely nothing we can do to make him more blessed than the Father has made him.  The only thing we can do is make Jesus happy, and this we do by loving and blessing those on earth whom Jesus loves.  Remember what Jesus said: “As often as you did it to one of the least of these, my brothers, you did it to me.”
If you want favor with God, then love and bless His children.
