This is so simple in its statement, which is in essence, reminds me to be mindful and intentional about living and as many decisions as I can.
In the receiving and gifting of gifts, gifts to time/efforts, usually what is more important is the intention of the giver than the actual gift/effort itself. Do not be distracted by the
- type of gift
- size of the gift
- when you receive the gift
But be more concerned about: what is the giver’s intention? Is this gift a love gift? Or a bribe/blackmail type of gift? An apology? Seek to understand the intentionality of the giver, nevermind how valuable or expensive the gift itself is…
