30 Quotes About Gifts

  • "Riches are the pettiest and least worthy gifts which God can give a man.

Therefore God commonly gives riches to foolish people to whom he gives nothing else."

It is the sweetest and most fragrant flower of the Spirit, that constantly sends out its beauty and fragrance, and blesses everything within its reach.

It is the brightest star that ever cast its radiance over the darkened soul and one that seldom sets in the gloom of morbid fancies and foreboding imaginations."
