(Illustration) President Eisenhower told this tale, "An old farmer had a cow that we wanted to buy. We went over to visit him and asked about the cow’s pedigree. The old farmer did not know what ’pedigree’ meant, so we asked him about the cow’s butterfat production. He told us that he did not have any idea. Finally, we asked him if he knew how many pounds of milk the cow produced each year. The farmer shook his head and said, ’I don’t know, but she’s an honest old cow, and she’ll give you all the milk she has!"’

3. God’s people need to be like that old cow. We need to give everything we have for Him.
