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
God gave us His Word as an instruction manual for our good. In this text, we see that what we measure out to others will be measured back to us. If we give, it will be given to us. Conversely, if we don’t give, it won’t be given to us either.
This goes against many of the popular opinions of the secular world where we are to do everything we can to get. These opinions do not acknowledge God as the source of all good things. Nor does it acknowledge God as a righteous judge who will punish evil.
All good things come from God. This loving God, who owns everything, knows that through our own generosity, we will be blessed beyond our ability to contain the blessing.
Satan has masterfully used the love and competition for money. To many, the church is just another in the long line exhorting, ‘me too!’
When the church gives the perception that it is always asking for money, it is often met with apathy and indifference — to the delight of the evil one. Please pray for God to guide you in the biblical promise relating to giving and reveal to you where your generosity may best be used in His service and to build His Kingdom.
