TIME TO A PIG


There’s the story of a man walking past a farm and noticed a farmer feeding pigs in a most unusual manner. The farmer would lift a pig up to a nearby apple tree, and the pig would eat the apples off the tree directly. The farmer would move the pig from one apple to another until the pig was satisfied, then he would start again with another pig. The man watched this activity for some time with great astonishment.


Finally, it was more then he could take. He walked over to the farmer and asked, "This is the most inefficient method of feeding pigs that I can imagine. Just think of the time that you would save, if you simply shake the apples off the tree and let the pigs eat them from the ground!"


The farmer looked puzzled and replied, "What’s time to a pig?"


(From a sermon by Terry Blankenship, Time: The Great Equalizer, 5/29/2012)
