That being said, there’s a little less first hand experience in relating to “gifts” in our relationship. None-the-less, each one of us knows someone, or maybe it’s you, who does feel greats amount of joy and love when they are given a meaningful gift.
One of the five love languages that Gary Chapman, author of the “Five Love Languages”, describes is “Receiving Gifts.” It is important to note the difference between a person whose love language is receiving gifts and a person who loves materialism. For a quick and deep self-check in differentiating the two, we need only to ask ourselves, “Am I looking to stuff to give me joy, comfort, peace, and happiness?" The way we see and think about stuff is what either positively or negatively affects our relationship with God and material things.
For a person whose love language is receiving gifts, it is not the gift itself that makes the person feel loved but the effort and the love behind it. Think the “little things,” the thought behind the gift matters most.
