Living Your Faith

Make a list of the gifts God has given your family. They may be things that you can see and touch, or they may be intangible gifts like character, health, or intelligence.

Ask yourselves:

  • Do you think your family has more gifts than some other families?
  • Do all the gifts have to have material value?
  • Are there some families you know who have gifts that can’t be measured in dollars and cents?
  • What does all this say to you about God’s generosity?
