Part of the work of any Christian is to reflect Christ’s work of being a gift to the world . We can be gifts to one another whether friends or strangers. Today, be a gift to someone. It could be as simple as a well put compliment to a stranger. In being a gift you will call others into an economy of gifts that transcends the mechanical transactions we so often fall into in our day.
