December is here. The stress level is high. It seems odd that for this one month out of the year, people feel obligated to be givers. Perhaps that’s why it’s so stressful. Most of us are not used to it.

Each one of you should give just as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, because God loves a cheerful giver. – 2 Corinthians 9:7 NET

There is no such thing as leftover bacon.  I have never seen it and I am convinced it does not exist.  In researching the topic, I have discussed the issue with several people.  They have all agreed.  Leftover bacon is a myth.

At first, this theory may appear to defy logic.  Every other food is capable of producing leftovers.  At our house, for example, spaghetti is particularly adept at this.   English peas and rice are also very leftover prone.  We once had three or four dates that sat in a small container in the back of the fridge for almost a year before I finally consumed them and put them out of their misery.  But never bacon.  Bacon is just too good to be left unconsumed.  The demand always meets the supply.

When I die, I don’t want to be like spaghetti or English peas.  I want to be like bacon.  One hundred percent shared out.  Every crumb given away.  Every bit consumed.  Nothing held back.  No leftovers.

He who has found his life will lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake will find it.

At 6 AM I sit in a Las Vegas hotel room munching on breakfast and blogging.  Downstairs, even at this hour, people are at the blackjack tables and slot machines giving money to the hotel. They’re hoping the hotel will give even more back.  I believe the odds would be better if they placed the money in the offering plate.
