Give and You Will Receive

Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

Luke 6:38

Give and you will receive.

Give a little.

Receive a little.

Give a lot.

Receive a lot.

Like brown sugar, packed tightly into a measuring cup, keep pressing down until you can press no more.

Fill your cup of life with giving,

and what you get back will run over the top of your own cup, pouring out all over your lap.

Generous giving = Abundant return

What exactly is it that Jesus is telling us to give away so freely, promising we’ll receive even more in return?

Luke 6:37-38

Do not judge, and you will not be judged.

Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned.

Forgive, and you will be forgiven.

Give, and it will be given to you.

A good measure, pressed down,

shaken together and running over,

will be poured into your lap.

For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

Give and it will be given to you.

Give a little.

Receive a little.

Give a lot.

Receive a lot.

Generous giving = Abundant return

Grace.

Forgiveness.

Mercy.

Pressed down.

Running over.

I’ll never look at my measuring cups quite the same.
