Every Gift Counts

Here is a video about a 5 year boy who was feeling left out on Mother’s Day. All the ladies were getting gifts but he received none. His parents decided, that as a gag, they would take an empty gift bag and put something that isn’t considered to be valuable. Their son saw it differently:

How do we receive gifts? Do we show the type of gratefulness this little boy shows? How about all the good gifts we receive from God? How do we demonstrate our thankfulness for everything He showers upon us? And, don’t forget, all good things come from our Heavenly Father.

Every gift counts–even bananas given as a joke.
