We can think that we are intelligent and know everything about life. Then we will fail. Or we can believe the Lord and allow the Holy Spirit to lead us.
If we follow the Lord Jesus, we need to give everything in our souls and minds.
Abraham's servant gave gifts to Rebekah. Abraham's servant gave gifts to Rebekah's family.

50 Laban and Bethuel answered, “This is from the Lord; we can say nothing to you one way or the other. 51 Here is Rebekah; take her and go, and let her become the wife of your master’s son, as the Lord has directed.”
52 When Abraham’s servant heard what they said, he bowed down to the ground before the Lord. 53 Then the servant brought out gold and silver jewelry and articles of clothing and gave them to Rebekah; he also gave costly gifts to her brother and to her mother. 54 Then he and the men who were with him ate and drank and spent the night there.
When they got up the next morning, he said, “Send me on my way to my master.”
