A Daily Devotion for Friday, August 20

Luke 6: 37-38

”Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. 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.”

The last sentence here is so powerful. If I use a stingy small measure with my giving to others, keeping track and never “going over”, this is all I should expect in return. It is like the “golden rule” my mother said to me a million times in my childhood, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” God sees the spirit in which our giving is done. He knows my “measure.”

Holy Father, help me to have your love in mind when I give to others. Help me to give freely, using a generous measure. Jesus, be my guide. Amen
