Do you like getting gifts in the mail? But isn’t it better to spend time in person with the people who would send you gifts, even if they arrive in person without bringing a gift other than their own presence? This would indicate that you are more relational than materialistic. What about gifts from me? Do you see the sun and the rain as gifts from me, that I send on the just and on the unjust alike? This could be extended to all provision. In continuing the parallel to gifts and presence above, do you see a difference between my gifts and presence? Those who are spiritually relational will value my presence more highly than my gifts.
