COMPARING GIFTS. I looked around at all the people grabbing stuff off the shelves, needing these things so badly or trying to please their children with desired purchases (as was I), and I was immediately struck by a thought: none of these things compare with physical fitness and good health; none of these things compare with a mind alert and deepening through reading and reflection; none of these things compare with the grace of knowing we are deeply loved and have an opportunity to make a loving difference in the lives of loved ones, neighbors who are materially poor, and strangers we are blessed to encounter.
