“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”James 1:17
When you open a present that’s been given to you, you do not respond, “It’s beautiful. Let me pay you for it right now!” The gift was given freely without any expectation of payment. The same is true when God gives: “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God” (Ephesians 2:8).
As nice as they are, our earthly gifts will fade, wear out, grow outdated, be forgotten, or be left behind after our days of life are over. But Jesus will never change; He is “the same yesterday and today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).
The Bible is a treasure trove, more exciting and precious than any other gift could ever be. Open it today to find the truth about God and yourself!
