Every good gift and every perfect present comes from heaven; it comes down from God, the Creator of the heavenly lights, who does not change or cause darkness by turning. – James 1:17 (Good News)
Do you hate it when you get blamed for something you didn’t do? Maybe your sister did something and blamed it on you. Or perhaps there’s a rumor going around school that isn’t true. How does it make you feel when you get blamed for things you didn’t do?
Many times, God gets blamed for things that He didn’t do. Often people blame him for tragedy and loss in their lives. When destruction hits, these events are often called ‘acts of God’. The thing is, God isn’t to blame for these things.
Today’s Bible verse shows us that God is good and only gives out good gifts and presents. This should make us excited. We don’t have a God that is teaching us lessons with destruction. Rather, we’ve got a God who gives us good things. So take comfort today knowing that God is ready to give you good things and He never changes or gets tired of you.
