Considerations of humanity and hogritude, because an insufficiency of pigs is one of the great faults of all that the gods have made manifest to man.

Hope, faith and pig banks

As a child’s gift, a pig bank is not an intrinsic teacher. We can not hope the gift alone will instill the will to save. A days enticements can far out weigh faith in any teasing future.

Without object lessons and some warm human guidance, kids let pig banks sink to the bottom of the toy box. They’re only remembered as a cache for raiding at the ice cream truck’s tune.

Hope, faith and pig banks

Hope and faith are two old pigs rooting history’s balance sheets. They snuffle, taste and discard most future budgets, planning illusions and unsalvageable investments.

These hogs correctly pass over the tedious preoccupation of money without benevolence. They know that while having a plan is important, money alone is only a small test of anyone’s character.

Devious daily distractions await adult savers, too. Their pig banks readily transform, usually unnoticed, into many unintended designs. Perhaps we are all somewhat lacking in thrift.

If the world affords us a saving path, we must not doubt, but do. Hope can knock together and faith can maneuver us along an agreeable route.

So let’s fill, not forget, our pig banks. And on the way, let’s undertake some productive work. Let’s also smell the flowers, appreciate family and friends, and maybe bring a pet along.
