It was a very lovely gathering in the outer foyer of the vintage theater.
Tables were decorated and food was prepared.
Soft background music floated through the air, adorning the laughter and conversation between family and friends.
A young lady was being honored at the event and several gifts for her had been placed on one side of the room.
The offerings from each guest were varied in size and shape.
At least one gift was hand made.
When we share with others, we show love.
When we give of what we have been given, we show love.
The writer of Hebrews tells us,
“Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.”
God notices when we give to others.
When we do good things.
When we share.
These things are pleasing to Him.
If I take a moment to think—
What gifts have been given to me lately?
What gifts of time, material items or service has God blessed me with through other people?
And finally, what gifts have I given lately?
What about you?
