How often do you attribute what you have and what you have achieved to God? Focus on the Giver, not the gift - Daily Bible Reflections November 13,2015

THE GIFT GIVER
 
For from the greatness and the beauty of created things their original author, by analogy, is seen. – Wisdom 13:5
 
       She was one of those girls whom guys would love to take home to their parents and whom girls would want to be best friends with. She was beautiful, with clear skin, bouncy hair and naturally doll-like eyes that twinkled as she smiled. Compliment her, and she’d tell you, “Thank you. Bigay ni Lord. (It’s God’s gift).”
       She was gifted with a love for music. Her voice could be likened to an angel’s, and this has become her instrument in serving God. As friends pat her on the back as she goes offstage after leading worship, she would humbly say, “Thank you. Bigay ni Lord. (It’s God’s gift).”
         One time, she shared about her success in her flourishing career. A new car had been offered to her as a reward for her hard
work. She answered my congratulations with “Thank you. Bigay ni Lord. (It’s God’s gift).” To her, everything is a gift from God.
       When we focus more on the Gift Giver rather than the gift, we can see God more. When we become more astounded by the generosity of God rather than the greatness of His blessing, we become more grateful to Him. Osy Erica (osy.erica@gmail.com)
 
Reflection: How often do you attribute what you have and what you have achieved to God? Focus on the Giver, not the gift.
 
Thank You, Father, for everything You have given me. For every blessing, help me to focus on You more. Remind me that every good thing is not of my doing but a gift from You. Amen.
 
St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, virgin, pray for us.
