Sharing

I watched a video of a man waiting to board an airplane but the flight was delayed. He wasn’t sure how long his delay would be so he purchased multiple cookies at the airport cafe. He proceeded to go and take a seat to finish reading his newspaper while he waited. He placed his belongings in the chair next to him and started reading the paper. On top of the table was a box of cookies so he proceeded to take one. There was a man sitting across the table from him and he too reached in and grabbed a cookie. The man got a little irritated with the other man that grabbed a cookie but didn’t say anything because he didn’t want to make a scene. Every time the owner grabbed a cookie the other man would grab one also till it came down to the last cookie. The man across the table grabbed the last one, looked at the owner, broke the cookie in half and gave it to him. The other man grabbed the empty package of cookies and took it with him when he left. The man couldn’t believe the nerve of this guy. All of the sudden over the intercom his flight had reconvened. So the man folded up his newspaper reached over grabbing his belongings from the seat and realized there was a full package of cookies under his things! Here he had been so upset at this other man who was taking his cookies when ultimately he was taking his. The other man shared and was happy about doing so, even sharing the last one. We can all take a note from this we should all be sharing with others the way that the other man did. Will you have an opportunity today to do the same? Hebrews 13:16
