When it comes to giving I’m the worst. Regardless of what it is for someone in need, a bed, winter coats, cash, a ham….I tend to do a personal inventory on what I have. First, I think of what I have that I use, then I think of my backups (my emergency hams), and if I have a third item, then I’m safe giving it away.

Of course, maybe that’s not giving at all. If I offer no sacrifice in my giving then what’s the point? I’m not saying giving is an exercise in what you can get out of exchange. But if we’re waiting till we have three hams (our own success) before we give, we may be waiting forever.
