James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
Some people are suspicious by nature. If you offer them something or offer to do something for them, they want to know what you want or what it is going to cost. Then there are those people who sound like they are complimenting you but, when they get done, you realize it was not a compliment but rather a criticism. Let us not forget those people who always jump in when someone is trying to do something because “they can do it better”. Then there are those who jump in on every story because everything they have done, cooked, seen or accomplished is better than everyone else.
The truth is that everyone is guilty of one of these habits at one time or another. All of us get suspicious, condescending, impatient and egotistical at times. It doesn’t make us any worse or any better than anyone else. It just makes us human. Maybe that is why we struggle to comprehend how or why God extends such wonderful grace to us. As James reminds us, God wants to share His glory and grace with us. He wants to bless us each day. As He blesses us, God is not looking for faults. He is not looking to see if we “deserve” His love. He offers it freely. Jesus said: Behold I stand at the door and knock, Rev. 3:20. He will not force us to love Him, but He will love us unconditionally when we invite Him into our hearts.
