“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) So what is a “good measure”. Well, back then it meant that when you bought grain in the market, the merchant didn’t do to you what Frito Lay do to us. When we open the potato chip bag we often find it half empty when we think it’s going to be full. That’s why I prefer to buy Cheetos! A generous merchant would fill his measure to the brim and then press it down and shake it so it settles so he could get a little more in before giving it to you as the customer. I got good news for you! Jesus says God is like that generous merchant – only more so! God will reward us in such abundance of blessings that they will be overflowing our basket and filling the robe in our lap. God is just that way! He will not and can not be out-given!!
