Is Sharing Stupid?

Saw this ad recently. Reminded me of our most recent field trip to Cherry Street Mission. Normally, we [and by we I mean the women's Monday morning Circle Group] prepare turkey sandwiches. Then we [and by we I mean the 8th graders @ Toledo Junior Academy] serve them. This month we decided to share our frozen leftouveurs from the car show.

Little did we [and by we I mean me] know how significant that would be!!! Sometimes, they only have enough food there to give everyone 1 hot dog. But that day, they got 2 [along with sauerkraut, juice, chips, AND a Reeses peanut butter cup.]

In Mark 4:30 Jesus asks, "What shall WE say the kingdom of God is like?" And then He goes on to compare it to the only Christian condiment in Scripture—mustard!!! Today, I think we'd say, the kingdom of God is like two hot dogs and a Reeses. Because sharing is neither stupid nor a gesture. It's the new normal. It's what growing kingdom seeds look and taste like today.

To me, Sharing is Caring, And it can be Romantic, depends on what your sharing, like, feeding each other strawberries with reddiwhip, or licking it off , never mind. use your own inmagination, like I was. It is a part of Love too. We all have NEEDS... Ever since we were born, I am no different. When I started this, I didn't plan on going to this level, But when you get coolwhip involved, it takes me over from experience. sorry. :) LOL
