“The Greatest Gift” is a 1943 short story by Philip Van Doren Stern. Now, it’s possible you’ve never heard of this story. It’s doubtful, however, that you’ve never heard of the movie based upon it: It’s a Wonderful Life.
This 1946 holiday favorite was nominated for five Oscars. It has been recognized by the American Film Institute as one of the 100 best American films ever made, and ranks #1 on its list of the most inspirational American films of all time.
At this time of year when there are literally thousands of Holiday Gift Guides and articles about the best gifts for everyone, we may wish to consider one of the lessons imparted over the decades from It’s a Wonderful Life:
Invest in the Future of Your Family
George Bailey (played by Jimmy Stewart) and Mary Hatch (played by Donna Reed in the movie) were high school sweethearts. They meet again later in life, and, not surprisingly, things are more complicated for them both.
George has had to stay in his job with the Building and Loan since his brother is leaving town to get married.
George doesn’t want to get married himself, but after visiting Mary, decides he loves her; realizes she loves him, and they do decide to get married.
Shortly thereafter, George’s Building and Loan hit a patch of financial trouble. Mary offers the money saved for their honeymoon to keep the business solvent.
Not every spouse would be willing to do this. Not only giving up their honeymoon—but investing in a potentially uncertain future!
But Mary has faith in George—her investment is really in him. The rest of the film is a tribute to the importance of family and friends, and the things in life that last.
This holiday season the best gifts for your own wonderful life are the ones that will last a lifetime. Looking to give a meaningful gift to your spouse, parent, home-owning children or even a close friend?
Here’s a gift that can keep giving as long as the sun shines: a gift of solar energy.
