All Good Things

If it is good in your life it is from God.  We need to understand that  If it is in your life, and it is good, it is from God.  Everything good in our lives is from God.  Everything.  Listen to James 1: 16-18:

Do not be deceived, my beloved.Every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift, is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. In fulfillment of his own purpose he gave us birth by the word of truth, so that we would become a kind of first fruits of his creatures.

6a010535724f84970b011168382f7a970cDon’t be deceived is how James starts this off.  Know the truth.  If it’s in your life, and it’s good, it’s from God.  Know that.  Every good gift is from God.  All good things.

That doesn’t just mean the stuff in our lives.  That’s means laughter.  That means friendship.  That means a beautiful sunrise.  That means a good job.

That means the fact that you woke up today.

That means that fact that you can read this is.

Your coffee.  Your lunch.  Your family.  Everything.

If it is in your life and it’s good, it’s from God.  Know that.  Remember that.  And be thankful.

We have so much today to be thankful for.  Today, remember those that grieve.  That hurt. That are in need.  That need God’s grace, comfort and consolation.

Be that grace today.  Today, you be that good gift.  You be that means of grace.  You be that salt and light.  You make that difference.

All good things come from God.  May we give thanks to God for those good things in our lives.  And may we be that good thing for someone else.
