"Give, and it will be give 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."
I love this verse; the imagery is so perfect. Jesus reminds us to be generous and fair in all of our dealings. This is the only way to expect to be dealt with fairly in the future. When we treat anyone with generosity and fairness, they are much more likely to do the same in their dealings with others. In this way we are shining the light of Christ.
Holy Lord, help me to remember to be fair and generous with others. I deserve to be treated just exactly as I treat others. Amen
