Giving

A bit Michelle read to me from her book Disciplines of a Godly Woman:

“Fourth, begin (giving) now.  The natural tendency is to put giving off until you feel able to give.  Such thinking keeps many from ever giving.  There’s an old story about the preacher who came to see a farmer and asked, ‘If you had $200, would you give $100 to the Lord?’
            ‘I would,’ answered the farmer.
            ‘If you had two cows, would you give one to the Lord?’
            ‘Sure.’
            ‘If you had two pigs, would you give one of them to the Lord?’
            The farmer said, ‘Now that isn’t fair! You know I have two pigs’”
