>It is always very difficult to think of good gifts to give my parents because they already get for themselves everything they need throughout the year. (They do the same for me and my brother, so our Christmases tend to be on the simple side.)

Don’t I do the same thing? Maybe it’s “hard” for God to give me good gifts because I am so hellbent on getting everything for myself. How did I get to be so bad at letting others, God most of all, take care of me? [Answer to that is another post entirely…] I think that’s why it’s important to be poor in spirit, to more easily allow room for God’s generosity…and I think that’s one of the many lessons God has waiting for me in missions…

Matthew 5:3 – Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
