James 1:17 ‘Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.’
God is a good God. He has good things in store for us. The Bible speaks about ‘gifts’ He has for us.
A gift is something that is voluntarily transferred by one person to another without compensation. A gift is a sign of both love and appreciation.
Translating from the Greek it would read: “Every kind of gift that is good, and every one that is perfect in its kind.”
God is the source of good gifts. He is also the source of every gift that is perfect in its kind – for me this means ‘exactly what we needed’. So the gifts God gives us are good and they are exactly what we need.
These gifts come from God – ‘Coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights!’ From the same one who made the stars, we receive gifts. It is not insignificant but rather it is phenomenal.
