If it is good and if it is perfect then it came from God. I must take to heart that He said that the gift is both good and perfect. If one lacks another then it is not from God . It has to be in the light for God is light. Also there is no turning or variableness with Him. He does not change from one thing to another. God is so GOOOOOG !!!!

this verse says it all about our Lord,even those who have no belief system, come under his mighty loving power,the rain falls the sun rises on all,King David said all other gods are the work of mens hands,there is no other to call upon, only Jesus, who payed it all on the cross for our sins,that is the greatest gift of all.
