Learning to appreciate the gifts
On this abbreviated episode of God, Money & Purpose, Vivian and Raul reflect on what is a gift. In years past, Raul would scrimp and save for weeks to save up for baubles and bags to give his wife, but now he realized the biggest gift he can give is his time and energy. What’s more, it’s not enough to give gifts one day a year, but you have to give gifts, both material and immaterial, every day of the year. But, it’s not enough to give gifts, you have to know how to receive gifts. Again, not just material gifts, but immaterial gifts as well.
God is giving you gifts every day, but you must have the mindset of abundance and gratitude to see them: the gifts of health, family, opportunity, and yes, even pain. Pain can be a gift because it makes you see where you need to level up in life. Your life is a mirror of your values: the more you give, the more you have. Happy holidays from Raul and Vivian Villacis.
