” ‘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

 

 Heavenly Father, You want us to be generous people. Please forgive us for the times we’ve been stingy. Forgive us for the times that we’ve been selfish or didn’t want to share, didn’t want to bless others. Forgive us for the times we’ve held back from giving our all to You. Giving doesn’t just refer to our money. Beyond just money, You want us to be unselfish with our love, our prayers, and our service to You and others. May we be aware of the people around us, and their needs. Lord God, may we have giving, kind, compassionate hearts. May we even consciously seek out ways to bless others. And when we give to You and to others – Your Word clearly states that You will give back to us. And You love to bless Your children lavishly! “Pressed down, shaken together and running over,” is such an awesome image! It’s like pouring brown sugar into a jar. When we first pour it in, it’s loose and has a lot of air pockets. But as we push and pack it down, there’s room for much, much more sugar in the jar! Or when people crush grapes: the more they pack and press them down, the more sweet grape juice spills out and runs up and over. In the same ways, You will give back to us abundantly. You will restore to us, in abundance. Please help us to remember that however generous we are – that is how generous You will be back to us. We love You so much, Lord. NO one is as generous as You. And Your supplies NEVER run out! May we be generous givers also. And please bless us so we can be even more of a blessing to others! In Jesus’s precious name, amen.
