Chapter Seventeen: Giving

Giving peach hand

God so loved that He gave

The opening verses of the Epistle of James contain a description of God as “the giving God.” That is the literal rendering of the phrase “God who giveth,” in the statement “God, who giveth to all liberally” (verse 5). “The giving God” it is almost a title.
How abundantly it is illustrated in the Scriptures! “He gave His only begotten Son”; “How shall He not also with Him freely give us all things T’ His giving is the outflow of His love “God so loved that He gave.”
He gives “liberally” (James 1:5), “freely” (Rom. 8:32), “richly” (I Tim. 6:17).
