Are we all naturally greedy? Most of us have all heard the saying "finders keepers" before, but does that always hold true? In this experiment, children are put in a situation where a wallet falls in front of them and they have to make a choice. What do you think they do?
Some of the personality traits we have are genetic. Others are learned, or just not so clear cut. Many people believe that greed may just be a part of life. Red Cross of Japan certainly doesn't think that is true, and they set out to prove it with this simple experiment. They use children to prove a point that we can all give back to those who have lost something. We all learn a very valuable lesson by watching this video.

After being officially de-recognized by America's largest university system because it required its student leaders to be professing Christians, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship is once again a recognized student group in the California State University system after conversations between the two sides has led to a mutual "understanding."
With 23 chapters on 19 Cal State campuses, CSU officially stripped InterVarsity, an international campus ministry with 985 chapters across the globe, of its official campus recognition last September because of the group's unwillingness to comply with an "all-comers" campus policy that prohibited the organization from requiring that its student leaders must be Christian.
In a press release last Friday, InterVarsity announced that after on-going conversations between the ministry's leadership and CSU officials, the ministry will be re-recognized as an official student group and will have access to use campus buildings and student government funding without having to compromise the organization's Christian values. more >>
