How Do I Measure Up?
Scripture: Luke 6:  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.”
Observation: What is my measurement for giving to others whether money or time. I have my moments but they are few and far between and it is at a moment when I want to be generous. So I shouldn’t expect much back because of the measure I give, but if I gave with the measure of what God has given me I would never be able to give enough.
Application: Remember when I’m giving to others I’m also being obedient to God. It should be automatic to give with no limits because of what I’ve already been given. People need to see my generosity so that I can point them to my Lord who gives everything simply by asking in His name.
Prayer: Dear Lord give me a generous heart and open doors that the measurement I use will be pleasing to you. All that I give comes from you anyway, may I be a good steward of your generosity.
