If I gave you a large sum of money and told you,"This is a gift for you ", You would probably say, "Thank you very much. "
But if ,after that,I added, "To receive this gift, you will have to work for me fifty hours " What would you think then? Perhaps you would say to yourself, "He is not offering me a gift, but wages. " And you would be right.We do not earn gifts, we can only accept them.
The gift s we receive are in reality expressions of the love that other persons have have for us.If we have to work to receive the gift,we tend to doubt the sincerity of their love. A gift ,by definition,is free.That `s why the Bible says, "The free gift of God is internal life ." [Romans 6:23]
