A gift is an amazing thing. It can take an ordinary thing and elevate it to something more. Even when it is something we request, a gift goes from being something we want to something we have been given. The giver has made an effort to bring the thing we wish to us because they have a wish to see us have it just as we wish to receive it.

Now which one of you fathers will his son ask for a fish, and instead of a fish, he will give him a snake? Or he will even ask for an egg, and his father will give him a scorpion? So if you, despite being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?

Luke 11:11-13

God is a better giver than any of us. Not only does he wish for us to be safe and comfortable but he sends us the Holy Spirit, the Comforter to help us when things are not so. We have an amazing gift from the ultimate Giver!
