"Give and gifts will be given to you." Luke 6:38a (From Luke 6:36-38)
This whole passage is about giving.
--give mercy (v. 36)
--do not judge; do not condemn; forgive (v. 37)
--give generously (v. 38)
And what do we receive?
--mercy from God (v. 36)
--we will not be judged; we will not be condemned; we will be forgiven (v. 37)
--we will receive generously: overflowing blessings! (v. 38)
The motivation in giving should not be the receiving. The blessings God gives are simply the result of our selfless giving--looking out for others more than for ourselves.
My offering to God: Today I will donate to the less fortunate.
