If you’ve never read “The Ultimate Gift” by Jim Stovall, you’re missing out on a truly inspirational book. Simply put, it blew me away. It inspired me and reinforced lessons that I tell my kids all the time – be a good person. Then be a better person…and ALWAYS work hard and NEVER feel entitled. This story also reminded me how important it is to be a student of life and to be grateful for every experience that came my way.
The story focuses on a wealthy man who passes away and leaves his great nephew nothing…except The Ultimate Gift. I won’t give away too much, but let’s just say the Gift is one that keeps on giving (sort of like life insurance!). The messages the man’s great nephew receives along the way are valuable beyond words.
It’s fiction…and clever fiction at that. In the real world, the best gift we can usually leave our family after we die is…you guessed it – MONEY! If I can leave my family financially secure after my death…and I plan on doing that…then I’ll die a VERY happy man.
