Little boy gives half a cherrio

I once heard the story of  a preacher at a small church in Northwest Indiana. Sometimes he would take his two small sons to the Thursday morning Bible study. George, an elderly gentleman, would split his donut with the littlest brother. One Sunday the little boy came to church with a sandwich bag full of Cheerios. George leaned over and asked him if he could have some. The little boy reached in his bag, pulled out a Cheerio, and split it in half, giving George half a Cheerio! Sometimes I think our view of our own generosity is often like that! God gives us so much, and we give Him back half a Cheerio!
