“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” – James 1:17
In the verses prior to this, James reminds us to not blame God for the problems of our lives. We are the ones who cause those. God should be praised for His goodness. Romans 2:4 says, “Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?” He is a good Father who gives good gifts to His children. Take a moment to stop and thank Him for all the good things He has done for you. A good spiritual exercise is to follow the instructions of one of our well know hymns, “Count Your Blessings.” “Count your blessings name them one by one and it will surprise you what the Lord has done….” Take a few minutes to thank the Lord for His goodness today.
