John 3:16 is of course the most widley known verse that shows of His unconditional giving. Giving His only son up to pay the price for our sins is the greatest act of giving and love there is. It still takes me aback when I think how He did that for a wretch like me.
Another person I tend to think of when the topic of giving comes up is my mother. She gave all she was able to give to me and my sister as kids as she could condering the circumstances. Being a mother to two kids with a husband constantly on the road was a large task. It had it's share of dark moments but light prevailed throughout. I can see that now.
Mom passed on 7 years ago. My son was born almost 6 years ago. The two seem to me now to go together. At the time of her passing I did not see a plan in it. All I saw was hatred and anger.
Our son was born 3 months early at 2lbs 6oz and spent the first 2 months of his life in the hospital. Again the only emotions I could muster up were hate and anger. I didn't see how this was any sort of love.
Through God's grace my son is a happy and healthy almost 6 year old. My wife and I had asked for a son and He gave him to us. I guess now we had to give her up to get him? I don't rightly know. Only God does. But I know she is watching over him every step of the way.
James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
