God's Generous Gifts

Then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine.

Proverbs 3:10

      We had just opened our gifts. I looked at the gifts in my stack and said, “I think everything I ever wanted is right here.” No, that never really happened, but that’s the way I feel when I think of the earthly blessings God has piled upon me. I couldn’t ask for more or better food, or a more pleasant place to live. God has given me friends and a family that love each other, and many comforts and conveniences. My “barns are full and vats overflowing.”
      When I add all that to the gift of faith in a God who loves and forgives me through his Son, my Savior, and the hope that I have in him, I am overwhelmed. How could I wish for anything more?

Lord, I thank you for the gift of life and all your gifts that make life pleasant. Amen.

Reflect: Make a list of God’s gifts to you.
