Share Your Cookies

You’re playing in the backyard with five of your friends.
Mom steps out the back door and hands you a plate of twelve cookies. What do you do?
Keep seven for you and give one for each of your buddies?
Twelve for you and none for them?
You have some options. But what do you think mom expects when she handed you twelve cookies in a yard with six kids?

Perhaps mommy expects us to be familiar with the words of the Apostle Paul where, in talking to rich people, he writes about the importance of sharing with others.
“Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others.” (1 Tim 6:18)

Whether we realize it or not, we’ve have been given a lot of cookies.
It’s very safe to say that, because you are viewing this video on a computer or smart-phone, you, my friend, are in the top 10% of the wealthiest people on the planet. No joke.

So what are you doing with the cookies you’ve been handed?
You’re not making excuses are you?
             “Well, their really not very good. No one else would want them.” Or…
             “I really don’t have that many.” Or…
             “Lot’s of people have way more cookies than I do”

Come on. Don’t be that guy.

One day soon we will all stand before the great Baker in the Sky and give an account for what we did with the goodies He gave us. So…be smart, be generous, share your cookies.
