God's Greatest Gift

"For the real good of every gift is essential first, that the giver be in the gift—as God always is, for He is love—and next, that the receiver know and receive the giver in the gift. Every gift of God is but a harbinger of His greatest and only sufficing gift—that of Himself."
- George MacDonald

  1. Reminds of James 1:17, "Every good gift & every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning." :-)
