It feels like we are steeling by accepting gifts from my parent-in-laws. They have been broke for decades. My husband & I financially supports them. I’m guessing one or both have dementia. Further, my husband just told me his mother has run up credit card bills of amounts nobody in our family could possibly pay off.
Now, we brought back gifts we received from them from the same places where they overspent on their accounts. I’m assuming, they will not pay-back. So, are we participating in steeling by accepting these gifts? Further, FIL has been mentioning stories about suicide this holiday. There is no joy in these gifts which seem to be a burden upon us; rather a curse. What should be done with these? I’m exhausted and becoming indifferent to this. What would be pleasing to God in this situation?
