James 1:17
17Every good gift and every perfect (free, large, full) gift is from above; it comes down from the Father [God] of all [that gives] light, in [the shining of] Whom there can be no variation [rising or setting] or shadow cast by His turning [as in an eclipse].

John 1:16
16 For out of His [God’s] fullness (abundance) we have all received one grace after another and spiritual blessing upon spiritual blessing and even favor upon favor and gift [heaped] upon gift.

1 Corinthians 2:9
9 But, on the contrary, as the Scripture says, What eye has not seen and ear has not heard and has not entered into the heart of man, [all that] God has prepared (made and keeps ready) for those who love Him [who hold Him in affectionate reverence, promptly obeying Him and gratefully recognizing the benefits He has bestowed].

1 Corinthians 2:12
12 Now we have not received the spirit [that belongs to] the world, but the [Holy] Spirit Who is from God, [given to us] that we might realize and comprehend and appreciate the gifts [of divine favor and blessing so freely and lavishly] bestowed on us by God.

Ephesians 3:20
20 Now to Him [God] Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]—

Many Bible verses use words like “abundant, abundance, bountiful, endless, and limitless” to describe the extravagance of God. As Father, God lavishes His children with His true riches.

What are true riches? True riches can also be called spiritual blessings, and these are what are referred to in John 1:16. [On this page you’ll find a link to a web page which describes some of God’s true riches.]

Spiritual blessings usually cannot be seen, touched, or purchased ― but they certainly can be enjoyed! Some of these are love, peace, hope, joy, wisdom, protection, provision, favor.

The opposite of spiritual blessings are material blessings ― things which can be touched, and fade, and wither, and wear out.

Be honest with yourself and consider: which would bring you personally longer-lasting joy ― material blessings or spiritual blessings?

Isaiah 60:17
17Instead of bronze I [God] will bring gold, and instead of iron I will bring silver; and instead of wood, bronze, and instead of stones, iron. [Instead of the tyranny of the present] I will appoint peace as your officers and righteousness as your taskmasters.
