Devotion for January 22, 2018

LUKE 6:38

38 Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.”

MAKING CHANGE$

Jesus promises that your giving will be returned to you “in full – pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap”. Don’t let fear or doubt hold back your giving. Instead, base your giving on trust in the promises of the Lord, knowing He will bless you beyond measure. Often times, the blessing we receive in obedience is NOT health, wealth and prosperity, but rather the spiritual riches of Christ (knowing him and making him known).

PERSONAL REFLECTION

Q: What is Jesus saying to you about the measure of your giving? Do you believe that God will return your giving and bless you because of your generosity?

Q: What can you do in your life to demonstrate that you trust God as your provider?

Q: How can you share with someone today the many ways that God has blessed you?
