God gave me my children, and my grandchildren. My daughters are beautiful and wonderful, and my grandchildren are the best. God must have thought me pretty special to have given me such beautiful people to spend my life with. No matter what I do I look at these people and say I am not worthy. But just when I thought it couldnt have been even better he also added a great husband and a cute cat. What do you think is the best thing God gave you?

I think the best gift God has given to us is, His only begotten son Jesus, to redeem us. That's the best gift I think :)

The best thing God gave me is salvation through His son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

You are assuming that God gives you stuff. If I was to acknowledge that God gave me something, I would say the best thing God gave me is logic and reason. Using that logic and reason I realize that God has not given me anything.

Good for you. I have learned that God has given me everything. Things I got from God include my life, my health, my children, my home, my sanity. And I think if I felt that God gave me nothing I would have nothing indeed not even logic and reason.

All of that came from God, you have no hand in the matter?

If you ask me do I believe that God gave me all of that the answer is yes, and you ask me if I had no hand in that, the answer is if God did not give me life, I would not have hands.

Well you sound a lot like me, except you dont have a cat on there. I tell you how spectacular I feel when I hear so many people saying that they are grateful to God what an amazing testimony I have gotten from him.

Where to begin He has given I should say blessed me with so much. I would have to start with my Mom and Grandmother both are passed away now. Both gave me my faith and taught me all about God and what faith is. They taught me there are more important things than money and material things both do not go with you when we leave this world. After my Mom and Grandmother passed God blessed me again with a great church family that helped me get through everything. It was very hard for me to lose my mom and God sent me a true angel in my deacon from my church. He helped me get through it and has been more like a big brother to me. He is always there to help me and is always there for me no matter what. God also blessed me with my dog Bandit she is so special and we have a very strong bond. This dog is more human than animal. She is very smart and is a great friend to have as well.

Animals are also some of God's greatest gifts. I am sure you already know this with Pearl. And I know that animals do go to Heaven. Wouldn't be Heaven without birds singing with the angels in a beautiful sky.

I can get whatever I want from God!! the best thing the god given me is my WIFE, if there is a next birth, I need the same best thing that god has given me.

You can only get what God allows you to have. He doesn't give people every single thing they want. There is this thing called free will and when we go off of God's path we have to live with it. God will always give all of us the very best which is His love.

No one gets wants from God, everyone gets needs from God. However most of the time you find that what you needed is exactly what you wanted.

God had given me countless blessings but i consider my life and my children as the best. He gave me life and made it more meaningful by blessing me with children hence, i could not really prefer one over the other as the best. I fell that choosing life without my children is emptiness so both are of similar value to me.

The free will to question whether he/she exists.

Good answer, but if you know he gave you free will, you also know he exists.

that's very nice to hear kayte. same here, the best thing and the most important one that i have now is family. nothing beats them. not all the luxury that money can buy. i just turned 24 two days ago, and i know i should expect that sooner or later i will be experiencing big and small problems in life. i always pray though that may God always take care of the special people i care about and if ever one of them will have to go away and say goodbye, i just wish i'll have the strength to carry on and just continue being positive about life. my greatest fear is seeing one of my loved ones suffer. hope it doesn't happen to me, or anyone who doesn't deserve it.

Dont worry, my daughter (the oldest) is 22 years old, and she is my darling sweetheart, but she has so many new things and problems that I can fix for her you know, but she told me that she thanks God that she has me to talk to, that was so amazing that I didnt even know what to say.

Hi, I think the best thing God gave me is this love and devotion for God himself. I wonder where would I stand if I didn't have this thing. I have faced so many bitter moments recently. It would be quite difficult to forgive and forget. Those bitter moments actually proved instrumental in molding me from a none to someone. And I will always be grateful for it all. I thank him everyday, every moment for giving me this great realization and opportunity, so that I can be his loyal devotee for life. God bless all

One of the best gift of God to me is my little angel, BABY ATHENA. She is my inspiration right now to continue and fight my homesickness here in Saudi Arabia this is for her future. I want to give everything for her even we're apart to each other i love my daughter so much. I hope she will understand my reason of going abroad for work when she grow up.

I think the best thing God gave me is my family. I just could not ask for more. I am so blessed with my family. Even if we are not close in terms of talking about personal lives, sharing secrets, I am just happy with their company and they make me happy. They have been all so good to me and they are also not the type of persons that creates major fights with other people. We are just a simple family, people who are just easy to please.

I believe that the greatest gift that God has given me is HIS love. Because of that love, He gave His only begotten Son so that we will be saved. There's no greater love compared to that of the Father. Isn't it? God bless.

Absolutely there is no love greater than the love of God.

For me the best thing god gave me (so far) is the gift of my parents cause primarily without them i would tend not to exist in this world. second reason is that they were able to raise me as a good person in spite of the many trials and challenges we face each day and the last reason is that because they were able to sent me to a prestigious school in spite the fact that we're just poor.

Hi totor, I agree with you that without your parents you would not exist today, but you are also saying that your parents were created by God. That would leave you without any grandparents. Please explain how you could not exist without your parents yet your mother and father was a gift from God.

God gave me my wife and two kids. Without them I will not be the one who i am today. God never fail to suprise me and gave things that i need in life. All i do is have faith and keeps on praying. In return i treasure my family for my entire life. Everyone is worthy for God's love but just need to spread the word and share His words for those who havent heard the good news. Spread the word. I am happy for you pastorkayte and i hope i have a cute cat as well just like what you have, God bless to everyone

Oh I hope so my cute cat Pearl is so adorable and God has given me everything. Just when I think life itself cant get any worse, God sends the best thing he gave me to make me feel better and I love him for always reminding me that he already gave me every single thing I need.
