Today I will honor the Giver over the gift. We receive many good gifts over a lifetime. The gift of new life, of eternal life with the Creator, is especially precious. But more to be honored is God, the Giver of all good things. I must take my eye off myself and focus it on my God.
Can’t you see the central issue in all this? It is not what you and I do… It is what God is doing, and he is creating something totally new, a free life!
Today I will praise God at His altar for what He is doing.
Photo interpretation: As attractive as gifts are, even more to be valued is the giver. Christ is the giver of our most valuable gift, the abundant life in Him.
