Are you a pig or a chicken?

Sometimes we can look to simple things of this life to learn deep lessons. Consider your breakfast of bacon and eggs. A chicken and a pig both contribute to the meal. There is a very big obvious difference between the two. The chicken has provided a contribution by giving the egg that was laid. The pig lost it's very life so you can enjoy that bacon.
Now, consider your spiritual life. Are you giving the Lord a contribution, or giving yourself a sacrifice? Which is Biblical?
Rom 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

Hmmm, God's word answers that question, huh?

So again I ask: are you a pig or a chicken?
Are you giving the Lord a contribution, or providing yourself a living sacrifice? The Lord Jesus Christ condescended to us, endured the shame of the cross for us and died and rose again the third day for us. The least we can do is be obedient to God's word and "present your bodies a living sacrifice". You make the call.........
