A physician was vacationing in the Cumberland Mountains and while
hiking, stopped at a mountain home for a drink of water. A little girl
gave him a glass of milk. The physician drank it and offered to pay her
for it. "On, no," said the girl, "we like to share."
A year or so later the girl was taken to John Hopkins to have
serious surgery. The parents, very poor, worried over the bill. When the
recovery was completed and the family was given the bill, it was
marked, "Paid in full by a glass of gold milk - we like to share too."
We realize that every case of sharing does not bring such a
connected or obvious blessing, but each case of giving has it's
blessing. It is with the belief that God blesses those who give, that we
offer the opportunity on such a regular basis. It is, indeed, more
blessed to give than to receive (Acts 20:35).
