“The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.” –Pablo Picasso
In this season of giving I can’t help but feel anxiety and tension about what to give to whom and how much to give to how many — not to mention what I want for myself.
But these words by Picasso help me to understand the true meaning of giving, and that is to share our individual gifts with others, whether that means material gifts or gifts of our talent or most especially our love.
There are so many ways to give to others rather than the commercialization of giving, so many ways to let others know how much we care for them.
I hope you will keep in mind Picasso’s words as you go over your gift list and search for ways to find both meaning and purpose in this season.
