What’s the best Christmas gift you ever received? Can you remember? No matter what it was, I’d bet nothing Santa Claus delivered even comes close to the many blessings of God.
And, while we’re at it, doesn’t every blessing come from God anyway? At least, that’s what the Bible says:
“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, NIV)
From our daily bread to many seen and unnoticed rescues, God’s gifts shower all over us. Maybe we don’t observe them all the time, but they are there. I wonder sometimes if we’ll have a chance to see a replay in Heaven of the many blessings we overlooked or failed to see during our mortal lifetimes. Wouldn’t that be an amazing thing to watch?
At the risk of sounding somewhat trite, can we simply say that God takes the naughty (which is all of us) and turns it into nice. No gift could ever compare to that!
