God’s Gift

 

Never let the gifts of God become more important than the God who gives the gifts.

Tony Evans

Sometimes we make the blessings and gifts from God our god.We put our material possessions on a pedestal and worship our achievements and forget that God made it possible for us to enjoy them.  This is not only inanimate objects we sometimes worship but our family and friends too.   Anything that comes between us and our relationship with our Father can be considered an idol.  Our Father wants us to have nice things to enjoy in life but remember He is also a jealous God and does not us to put more emphasis on what He give us than on Him.

Remember, God is the giver of blessings—the blessings are not the giver of God,
