Do You Possess The Gift of Graciousness?

Being gracious is a gift. Have you ever received a gift you didn’t like? Have you ever been invited to a party you didn’t wish to attend? Has someone you don’t like wanted to converse with you? Are you gracious or do you make the gift giver, the hostess whom invited you or the person whom wants to converse with you know it is not what you desire? For my entire adult life, there was someone whom made certain I always knew I was beneath them. They would choose not to look at me if I asked a query or reply to me when I spoke or acknowledge me when I was present. Even though such actions are offensive to us the recipients, I must always remind myself, the person whom lacks the gift of kindness and graciousness has a much greater loss in their life, than as do I; the recipient of such unkindness. Acts 20:35b: “it is more blessed to give than to receive.”
