AverageAmericanGuy: A chicken and a pig strike up a conversation. The chicken says, "I love the farmer. Everyday he comes out and brings us food and every night he gives us a place to sleep."The pig nods in agreement and says, "We should do something nice for him."Chicken perks up, "I've got it! We'll make him breakfast. How does Bacon and Eggs sound?"The pig looks at the chicken, "I cannot agree to that. For you it is only a small sacrifice, but for me it would be total commitment."This is how it is with Jesus and you. Maybe you can inconvenience yourself every now and then and think you are serving the Lord. But unless you're willing to make a full commitment, how can you say you truly love the Lord?
Insatiable Jesus: As a kid in Nebraska, I worked in a large scale indoor hog barn system for a couple of summers. The had a poster in the locker room (had to shower going in and out) that showed two pigs laying in a bed, smoking, having just had sex. It read: Makin' Bacon.It was funny. I would see it every day when I went in. And then I would go castrate a couple of hundred barrows or maybe help put down and clean up a sow suffering a vaginal, or rectal, prolapse. Maybe I'd help the "hand man" as he helped guide these long, corkscrew boar dicks into sows in the breeding barn. And when the pig farking was over, maybe we'd use some bolt cutters to give dental care to boars. Or stoke the incinerator with a wheelbarrow full of barrows from the nursery. Maybe that day would end with one of my co-workers getting me with a prod as I showered out. Or get to experience any number of other mind numbingly horrific things on any given day.And I love pork.Especially good bacon.
