Gibbs' free energy corresponds to the amount of work that can be performed in a given system. A positive delta G means that the system is not spontaneous, and a negative delta G means that the system is spontaneous.

If Gibbs free energy, or delta G, is negative, then it releases free energy, which can then be put towards doing work. This is why we have the relationship delta G = -w(max).
