God’s Gifts

When King David prayed in I Chronicles 29, he spoke these words, “Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand.” (I Chronicles 29:14) David’s prayer will cause us to think about what comes from God.

Life comes from God. “For by him all things were created in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” (Colossians 1:16-17)

Our spiritual gifts come to us from God. “Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.” (I Corinthians 12:7)

From God we receive material gifts. Jesus said, “‘Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.’” (Luke 6:38)

The Bible teaches us to be good stewards of what God has given to us, to tithe in response to God. “‘Test me in this,’ says the Lord Almighty, ‘and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.’” (Malachi 3:10) God gives gifts to us so we can give gifts to our great God.
