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
My dad used to give me, my mom, and my sister a rose every Valentine’s Day.
Now that I have my own house, I have two rose plants outside my front door. The roses haven’t bloomed yet, but they are still pretty.
When we give to others, it’s not because we are expecting to get back something of equal value. Giving can just be because we are thankful that Jesus gave His all for us. Amen.
