John Piper's Jam From Twitter

Not gonna make this a lengthy blog entry. Much like the video I shared yesterday, this one speaks for itself.

But I will write a "few" words. Sometimes it is easy to get so caught up in enjoying the gifts that we forget the giver. I can remember times when I was a little boy, I would get presents for Christmas or my birthday, and I would get so caught up in enjoying them and playing with them that I never took time to show my appreciation for my parents who gave the gifts.

Sometimes, I think we are that way with God. I mean there are whole belief systems built around what we can "get" from God. God is infinitely generous and merciful, and while He treats us far better than we deserve, He is the greatest Gift of all.

Wherever you are today, I hope you can take a moment to reflect on the abundant provision God has given you, in HIMSELF.
