God’s gifts…

Have you ever wondered why God gives so much? We could exist on far less. He could have left the world flat and gray; we wouldn’t have known the difference. But he didn’t.

He splashed orange in the sunrise and cast the sky in blue. And if you love to see geese as they gather, chances are you’ll see that too.

Did he have to make the squirrel’s tail furry? Was he obliged to make the birds sing? And the funny way that chickens scurry or the majesty of thunder when it rings?

Why give a flower fragrance? Why give food its taste? Could it be he loves to see that look upon your face?

If we give gifts to show our love, how much more would he? If we – speckled with foibles and greed – love to give gifts, how much more does God, pure and perfect God, enjoy giving gifts to us?
~ From He Chose the Nails by Max Lucado

One response to “God’s gifts…

  1. Our God is a God of abundance. He DELIGHTS to give to His children and His desire is for us to enjoy an ABUNDANT life. He delights in our delight – and His delight is complete when we thank Him and praise Him for His abundance toward us.
