day no. 14,049: when the gift betrays the confession

Ecclesiastes 5:1
Guard your steps when you go to the house of God. To draw near to listen is better than to offer the sacrifice of fools, for they do not know that they are doing evil.
Accidental evil may be the most unfortunate misunderstanding imaginable. If someone strives to provide a gift of bread to someone who is allergic, it is not well received, especially when the giver proclaims a deep, personal relationship with the recipient. The gift betrays the confession.
