“We are rich only through what we give, and poor only through what we refuse.”
-Anne-Sophie Swetchine (1869)
God’s gifts to us are bountiful! Yet how many of them do we recognize, how many do we use? All the riches of the world are available to us right here and right now. We have only to graciously accept them into our lives. Is there any work of art more valuable than a sunset? It is ours to gaze upon every day! Giving makes us rich, by allowing us to experience the good we can do in the world. Receiving God’s gifts makes us rich, because we understand that there is nothing that we lack.
