    We can't live without air, (which is) a great gift from God.

    If it's something we can't live without, surely it's not really a "great gift". I would expect a great gift to be something wonderful but ultimately unnecessary.

    You've never had a gift that was something necessary?

    Re: We can't live without air

    Of course I have, but a great gift would be a proper treat, something I want but don't need! You know, like a huge box of chocolates!
