“Seek the giver, not the gift”

Bill Johnson’s quote:

“No one was ever discouraged, corrected, or criticized by Jesus for seeking His gifts. “Seek the giver, not the gift” is a religious idea that comes from people who fear excess more than they fear lack. If you happen to find “His hand” instead of “His face,” just look up. They’re not that far a part.”


This is a typical example of a statement that can be ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ in the same time.

Simply because  You can easily get God’s gifts with no relationship with Him whatsoever,but you cant be in a relationship with Him without getting his gifts.
