VerseD: Psalm 23:1-2

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.

No matter what life brings, God gives us peace and rest. It is a gift of His Sabbath.

VerseD: Luke 11:13

“If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”
Luke 11:13, ESV

Most of us like giving gifts. What greater gift can we get than Jesus, the Son of God, by the power of the Holy Spirit?
Turn to God today.

VerseD: James 1:17

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.
James 1:17, ESV

Because God never changes, we can trust His promises, including that He cares for the needs of His people, often more than we understand.

VerseD: Matthew 19:26

But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Matthew 19:26, ESV

It is the power of God that saves us, by grace through faith. Nothing we can do, have, or give can get us closer to God. It is His gift.

VerseD: James 1:17

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.

We should always give thanks to God for the good in our lives, for His promises are true and He never changes. We can trust His faithfulness.

VerseD: Luke 11:13

“If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”
Luke 11:13, ESV

We all like giving good gifts, especially to those whom we love.

What better gifts could we get from our heavenly Father than forgiveness of sins through His Son and a Comforter who connects us to Him?

VerseD: 1 Peter 4:10

As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace:
1 Peter 4:10, ESV

We could say “blessed to bless,” but it goes deeper. If you have opportunity, serve others and share the Gospel, even out of meager offerings and skill.

VerseD: James 1:17

Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.
James 1:17, NASB

God does not change nor tempt with evil.

He only gives good gifts, generally to all, but specifically to His people. Most specifically, He gives grace and salvation.

VerseD: Jeremiah 17:7

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord And whose trust is the Lord .
Jeremiah 17:7, NASB

God gives us stuff, sure, but the one who trusts God learns to be content in all circumstances and regardless of what is (or is not) received.

VerseD: 1 Corinthians 13:2

And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
1 Corinthians 13:2, ESV

It is not enough to seek spiritual gifts of any type if love for God and others (both, at the same time) is not driving the desire.

Seek God’s love and righteousness, and you will be amazed what God does through you.
