free Bulletin articlesBible Passage: James 1:17

Today’s Bible verse begins, “Every good and perfect gift is from above…” When my son Ezekiel was born, I received a card with that Bible verse on it. I thought it was quite appropriate. He definitely was a gift from God. What I find amazing is that sometimes little things, things I find less important, can also be classified as gifts from God.

Today I helped a man get some food from a local ministry. He was quite thankful for the food he received. However, he was given one particular item that gave him a lot of joy. He was given a can opener. Before today, he did not own a can opener. You know, all the free food in the world, especially canned food, is meaningless without a can opener. I don’t know about you, but I take my cans of ravioli, corn, and peas for granted. And I never think twice about how I will open them. Okay, my wife usually opens them, but that is beside the point.

The idea I want to express today is that our gifts from God can be anything, even a can opener. Since I’m talking about gifts, what did God bless you with today? A loving spouse? A good job? Great parents? Yet another material posession? A nice meal? A peaceful day? Whatever your gift from God was today, don’t forget to tell him “thanks!”
