Do we look gift horses in the mouth?
Well, the saying says ‘never look a gift horse in the mouth’.
Surely, we need to define the ‘gift horse’. On the surface, many things can seem appealing, especially at times when we are struggling in life. There is almost a sense of relief that something has finally come our way.
It’s perhaps better though to reflect on things, particularly removing a financial reward that the gift horse maybe offering, and go with perhaps our instinctive feelings and ask does it sit well with my values?
After all, not every gift is a blessing, look what happened at Troy.
There is always another horse that comes along in life.
