Give, and it will be given to you!
The Bible says, “Give, and it will be given to you…For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.” (Luke 6:38, NKJV)
Quite the mystery, isn’t it? We give, and it’s given back to us.
How is this possible?
In theory, if I give my sandwich to someone, I don’t have one any more! Unless…we see things from a different perspective. I give a sandwich, and I receive a smile, thankfulness, in return. My heart is full and satisfied. I’m filled with joy.
I give something, let go of it, but I receive something of even greater value!
Who doesn’t need a smile in his/her day, gratitude, or to hear the words “thanks for existing”?
You see…how good it is to give!
Jesus Himself taught us that there’s so much happiness and blessing in giving.
“…remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” (Acts 20:35)
Thank you for what you’re going to give today, and thank the Lord for what He’ll allow you to receive in return! It’s His promise for you.
I’m with you and praying for you…and for those in the United States, have a blessed, Happy Thanksgiving!
Thanks for existing!
