The Best Gift is You

The other day I was taking some belonging I didn’t want any longer to the second-hand store when I thought of the concept of giving away non-physical gifts. As we enter into this year’s time of giving, remember, as well as giving physical gifts this Christmas, there are many gifts that we can give that are free to give and yet priceless in value.

The Best Gift is You Podcast

Give away that which you have plenty of

To others who are devoid of

To those in desperate need of

For you are the best gift you can offer.


If you have good health and strength

Love, joy, peace and patience,

If you delight to encourage

Share these qualities with others.


Share your talent and experience

Don’t hide them deep within

Learn the skills you need to know

To share your gifts with the world.


If you write, if you paint, if you sing

Then share a story through your gift

If you love to serve and help others

Then serve with a gracious attitude.


An unwritten book, a painting half-finished,

A song unsung and a cake unbaked,

Serving hands tied behind your back

Are of no value to anyone, nor even yourself.


To share our gifts will take time and effort,

Courage, focus and discipline

God gives us talents we must develop

And share with those waiting to receive.
