“If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?” (Matthew 7:11 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible)

Where does that irresistible urge to buy gifts for children come from? It’s almost an uncontrollable desire to shower little ones with wonderful treasures for their enjoyment. We would do anything to see a child’s eyes light up with pleasure. If I feel that way about my own children, how much more does God desire to pour out abundant blessings on His children.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, You have made available to your children all of heaven’s bounty. It’s mine to enjoy if I ask for it. Thank you for your incredible love for me!
