Yoruba Word Of The Week : Êbùn

Êbùn is the Yoruba word for gift.

No matter how small or even big, it is always nice to receive a êbùn.

The gesture is never too small ... it is truly one act that speaks volumes.

Whatever you can give, never overlook a chance to give a êbùn.

Whatever you receive, always do it gladly and whatever the êbùn or the price that came with it, be grateful always.

The noun is : Êbùn // A simple sentence is : Mo gba êbùn (I received a gift).

May God help us to readily give rather than receive (remember ‎"It is more blessed to give than to receive" Acts 20 : 35) and to be appreciative of what others give us!
