“For Good Measure”
Luke 6: 38: “Give, and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, they will pour into your lap. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.” You can make this verse all about money if you want, but its context is way deeper. If you want mercy, be merciful; if you want freedom from judgment and condemnation, don’t judge or condemn; if you want pardon for yourself, pardon others. And, if you want empathy from others, take the time to show them some empathy when it’s needed. This passage is the Gospel of the Kingdom in a nutshell, and the world will be a better place when people start living it.
