“Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.” When we consider this scripture we see Jesus teaching us a biblical principle that should be very foundational for our life. Investors would agree to the importance of considering what type of ROI (Return on Investment) you should anticipate before business transactions. ROI measures the efficiency in converting a business investment to yield a profit. Therefore, it is vital to know if a business venture is a worthwhile investment.
In this scripture, Jesus has assured us that our investment into the Kingdom is not only worthwhile there is a guaranteed profit you will experience. In this scripture He explains the type of return we can expect, our blessing will be a good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over. Consider for a moment what happens when you began to pour water into a glass if you don’t stop before the glass fills you can expect an overpour of the water so much that it’s running over. This is a visual of what Jesus is teaching us about the principle of giving and sowing seeds into the Kingdom. We encourage you to join us in giving our gifts back to God. To our online community, as you prepare to give begin thanking God for what He has given you, and because of your cheerful generosity thank Him in advance for what shall be measured back and returned unto you.
Lord today I sow my gift into your house. Jesus, you said to give, and it will be given unto me. I thank you that with the same measure I use it will be measured back to me. Amen
