“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.” —James 1:17 (NKJV)
Every good gift. Think about that for a moment. Every single one comes from above. From the everyday small to the life-changing huge, heaven is involved in each gift in our lives. There’s no variation in it.
The holiday season of the year is in full swing. No doubt you’re bustling from here to there, gift buying and holiday prepping. I can’t stop thinking how busy we are in our own household, and how a nice cup of coffee and a heart-to-heart with a dear friend would be just about as perfect a gift today as I could imagine. (Cozy smiles and laughter are precious, aren’t they?)
A cup of coffee is a small thing, isn’t it? It’s not anywhere near the huge category. But it’s still a blessing. It’s a breath of grace and a hint of mercy, wrapped in a heart-hug-reminder… God is in the business of giving, and that will never change.
Heaven is raining gifts today.
They’re in the small and the huge. Heaven shows no shadow in a smile. Or a hug. Or love freely given. May your gifts be abundant today, both in those you give and the ones you receive in return. They’re perfect, aren’t they? And they’re all for you.
Praying gifts for you,
