Give and Gift

GIVE and GIFT are in the word forgiveness. When I decide to forgive someone who has wronged me, that is a GIFT that I GIVE to that person. And when I have decided to move on without the person with no bitterness at all – though I may remember the offence and the betrayal of trust as a lesson learned; and now with no need to have anything to do with him or her, then that is a gift I am giving to myself.

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it. I am sure you are grateful to a lot of people who have helped you. So now go and unwrap the gift and let them know. It’s a perfect time to do that this Christmas season.

And here’s how to bring our actions to the next level according to William Arthur Ward… Do more than care: HELP. Do more than believe: PRACTICE. Do more than belong: PARTICIPATE. Do more than be fair: BE KIND. Do more than forgive: FORGET. Do more than dream: WORK.
