Give, and it will be given to you (Luke 6:38). It can be tempting to hear this and focus on what we get out of giving, but doing so would miss the point. Jesus preceded that statement with this one: “Love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked” We don’t give to get things; we give because God delights in our generosity. Our love for others reflects His loving heart toward us. Gracious Father, help me to give generously to others because You’ve been so generous to me.
