What standard of measure do you use? Are you a spoons size person; a cup size person; quart; gallon; barrel; tanker? The measurements keep going until you reach abundance size measurements. The reason I bring this up is because Jesus says in Luke 6:38 “ give and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure —- pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.“
We love the idea of a good measure pressed down shaken together and running over but we have to understand we are giving back to based on what we give out. What measurement are you using when you serve others, when you love others, when you forgive others, when you honor others? The injustice that most of us don’t recognize is that we expect more than we give, we expect people to serve us more than we’ve served others. The other challenge is, we will not reap until due season, therefore we have to keep giving, serving, loving, forgiving, honoring even when we don’t see a return. Because if you’re measurement is abundance that’s a lot of giving.
All I know is that if we keep doing good as the Lord had told us to do, even if you don’t see a return immediately, you will see it eventually according to the measure that you have measured it out. As for me and my house or measurement is abundance.
