Give God Your Purple Dinosaur

Our five-year-old gave me a purple dinosaur. I’m uncertain the occasion. He loved this dinosaur, so I responded, “Son, I can’t receive this gift. This is one of your favorites.”

“But Daddy,” he replied, “I love you. This is my best toy.”

Christians get all worked up about what they should give. Give purple dinosaurs.

What’s the best gift you’ve received? What does receiving thoughtful gifts teach you about God?
