Every Good Gift

[152 words]

A poor man was given a loaf of bread. He thanked the baker, but the baker said, “Don’t thank me. Thank the miller who made the flour.” So he thanked the miller, but the miller said, “Don’t thank me. Thank the farmer who planted the wheat.” So he thanked the farmer, but the farmer said, “Don’t thank me. Thank the Lord. He gave the sunshine, rain, and fertility to the soil, and that’s why you have bread to eat.”

Regardless of how sophisticated, how advanced we may be scientifically, we still can’t create: we still can’t make a kernel of wheat. That has to come from God. God gives us the things we need in order to live on this planet. “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning” (James 1:17).
