"If you... know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!" Matthew 7:11
Maybe we give gifts according to where we are at the time, rather than where the person is who is receiving the gift.

Last week, I bought the loveliest handkerchief for my sister. It is old-fashioned looking and has her initial on it. I was in a nostalgic and sentimental mood at the time. She's not a very frilly of fluffy person. But she will probably like it, since her favorite sister will be presenting it to her.

This afternoon, I bought my friend some smiley-face pencils for her upcoming birthday. I like them, and although it is a small gift, she will no doubt appreciate the thought behind it.

A long time ago, our Father decided to give us a gift. He picked something He wanted to give us: a bridge back to Him, and the relationship He has always wanted with us It cost Him a bundle, but He gave us the gift anyway, because that's where He was at, loving us that much.

Lord, thank you that I am your priceless and treasured possession. Thank you for creating me to fellowship with You, the eternal God. Help me, Lord, to understand the deep truth of that. In Jesus' name, Amen.
