God Freely Gives His Good and Perfect Gifts!
In general, we give or receive gifts mostly on special occasions. For example, we usually don’t give gifts on Independence Day, Saint Patrick’s Day, or Thanksgiving ... but on Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and birthdays, yes! Do you know what? God doesn’t wait for a special occasion to give to us! ;-) God gives because He loves. And He loves all the time!
Your Heavenly Father has good things for you. In fact, He has reserved the best things for you! Nothing can match what He wants to give you:
- His peace, His joy, His life, His liberty
- The ability and freedom to accomplish the mission that He’s entrusted to you on Earth
- The strength to continue to be a light in this world, even when it’s difficult.
And above all, God gave Jesus, His most extravagant gift, out of love: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (the Bible, John 3:16)
Even as the Lord has given you His best gifts, you can reach out and give to others through His love. You are blessed to be a blessing! There is such a great freedom in giving to others, such a joy that is released as we give like the Father does!
As the Bible tells us, “I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” (Acts 20:35)
Pray this prayer: “Lord, thank You. You have given me everything, the best of the best gifts. Thank You for sending Your Son out of love! Thank You for Your peace, joy, strength, and life. I pray that You help me to be like You today ... I want to give extravagantly to this world You so love! Thank You for the freedom and joy of giving. In Your name, amen.”
