The Secret To Getting!

“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 the standard of measure you use, it will be measured unto you in return.”  Luke 6:38

We spend so much of our energy and effort in life trying to get!  Jesus tells us that the real secret to getting is giving!  A lot of the stuff that we work so hard to get, is really not even worth having after we get it.  Have you ever worked hard for something that you wanted and then when you finally got it, discovered that it was not all that you thought it was?

When we give our life away – life gives back to us!  It is usually not in the ways that we would think, but it is almost always in the way that we need.  When I give of myself to others and for others, life just has it’s way of giving back to me in incredible and amazing ways.  You can’t out give God and when you are giving your life for His glory, you will always have more than enough blessings!
