A Proper Gift Exchange

Description

There’s always some tiny thread of something we could intentionally focus on and make the smile go from fake to real.

Do you know the rules behind a good and proper gift exchange? Hi, I’m Lysa TerKeurst with Proverbs 31 Ministries.

Recently, my youngest daughter Brooke was stating the rules for a gift exchange. She said…”Rule number 5: If you get something you don’t care for, pretend that you like it.

I couldn’t help but think, “Truer words have never been spoken.” But then I started to think about that fine line between being honest and being fake. We are master pretenders, are we not? But instead of faking we like something, couldn’t we find something purposely to look for that we do like in that gift… or that woman that gets on our nerves… or our spouse’s comment… or whatever else triggers us. There’s always some tiny thread of something we could intentionally focus on and make the smile go from fake to real.
