“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Luke 6:38

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“Give, and it will be given to you:

a good measure,

pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be poured into your lap.

For the measure you use will be the measure you receive.”

.

– Luke 6:38 (NET)

REFLECTION…

.

What an emphasis Jesus makes on giving!

.

Giving

…is loving.

When we give generously and from the heart

and expect nothing in return,

it is giving like Jesus gave.

.

Forgiving

…is giving from self.

It is forgiving like Jesus forgave.

.

Loving

…is giving of self.

It is caring and being merciful and kind.

It is loving like Jesus loved.

.

Jesus encourages us to give with all our hearts,

and He promises that however much we gladly give in this life,

God will use the same measure with us in life eternal,

only giving us more, much much more

…because God cannot be outdone in generosity.
