Amanda was handed a beautifully wrapped gift box by her maid. To Amanda’s surprise the box contained a big piece of cow dung. The sender was a well known enemy of the family. In turn Amanda asked the maid to send her enemy a bouquet of a dozen, fresh long-stemmed roses.
The simple accompanying note read: “One gives what one has.”

A common Latin expression reads, “Nemo dat quod non habet,” which translates as “You cannot give what you do not have”. I suppose the inverse is equally true: we can only give what we have in us to give.
What traits and characteristics are you planting, cultivating, nurturing and nourishing with consistency? Remember: what you cultivate within is the gift you have to offer.
