To Give is to 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 NIV)

What have you given today??? Ask yourself: "Have I given enough to reap a harvest in return??" When you give unconditionally, you also make room to receive. How you give will determine the outcome of your harvest. It's like making deposits into a bank account, people, or even a career - you get out of it, what you put into it.

When you make deposits of sustenance, it is safe to expect a generous return and when you need to make a withdrawal, [hopefully and prayerfully], you'll withdraw only what you need so there's enough left over for another day.

Today, try giving more love to those whom may be difficult to love and see what happens…..

Sharing the Promise,
- Rev
