"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning."
- James 1:17
 
In spring the sun does not gain new power nor send forth greater glory. The secret of the change which takes place about us is simply the turning of our land's face toward the God-given source of natural light and heat and life.
 
In God, to whom we are indebted for all that we are and have as Christians, there is no variableness nor shadow of turning. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
