God loves to give

“…in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding”. Ephesians 1:7

In the story of the prodigal son, the surprising outcome is the younger son ends up bringing the Father more pleasure than the elder son. The younger son gave the Father an opportunity to give but the elder son never did. He never asked for anything. One of the things the story of the prodigal son teaches us is that God loves to give.

At Christmas when we think about the giving of gifts, let’s also remember that God loves to give. Children have no problem accepting presents. They are just delighted to be given a gift but adults feel the need to reciprocate. However with God we cannot begin to do this. God gave us Jesus and He wants us to be like children and simply accept by faith what He has done for us.

This process continues as we grow in the Lord. He wants to give us more of His grace, more of His love and more of Himself. He delights to give yet we are often reluctant to receive. We live in a world where you don’t get anything for nothing. The attitude of the world is one of self-sufficiency – “I can make it on my own”. Sometimes we forget that God doesn’t operate like the world.

God’s people shouldn’t operate like the world either, but rather we should be willing to accept all that God has for us.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Such a great reminder - one I definitely needed! We can never outgive God.
