We were having bacon and scrambled eggs at the dormitory one morning when a fellow dorm mate asked, “Who gave more-the chicken who laid the egg or the pig that gave us bacon?”
After a great deal of laughter, we seriously began to reflect on the question.
Ho much do we actually give of ourselves?
As much as the pig who had to die in order to put meat on our breakfast table?
The extent of our generosity is an expression of our character, of how charitable we are.
In our increasingly materialistic society, people who can give “much” are the ones who gain recognition.
