The apostle James encourages the Church to exhibit true faith.

James 1:17 Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. (NASB)

Having just come from the Christmas season the attraction of things is still very strong in our minds. If only I could afford that certain thing, how happy I would be!  Ever watch a child throw aside a lovely gift only to grab another?  And by the end of the gift giving -- sometimes show no gratitude??  In fact, sometimes all you hear are complaints about what was not received.

The point is, having nice gifts is not the source of true happiness.  Only God knows how to satisfy our deepest yearnings!  When God withholds a request for a time -- or says "No" -- remember:  "God gives His best to those who leave the choice to Him."
