As a child I am sure you all know how much fun it was to open a present. It was so exciting to see the gift wrap,the bow, your name. Something just bubbled up inside of you. You did not have any idea what was inside. You hoped that it was something new and exciting. Something you saw on television. Something you saw in a store window. I remember asking for Lego's way back when. My parents were struggling just to make ends meet. I did not understand the back story then. I opened my gift on Christmas and it was not Lego's. I sunk down inside. It was a gift. Wrapped nicely. A bow. And my name. What I did not realize then as some of us do now, it is not what's on the outside that counts. It is the thought. It is the time and effort put into it. It is the genuineness. It is the heart. Look inside yourself. Look inside of others. God looks inside of us. When you come from the heart in a giving manner, he(God) smiles on you.
