If you continue to take, take, take and never give, give, give, you block the reciprocation of giving and it being given back to you. – BDW
“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again” – Jesus (Luke 6:38) (KJV)
Once it leaves your hand there is a cycle that takes affect. A cycle of it returning back to you.
Picture the starting point of a circle. The circle is not complete until the end of the circle meets the start of the circle.
In fact, it cannot successfully be called a circle without this process taking place. It must be circular in form. It must have a starting point and a ending point. It must return back to it’s starting point.
Likewise with giving it must reciprocate. It must make a return for something done or given.
The Amplied Bible states it this way, “Give, and [gifts] will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will they pour into [the pouch formed by] the bosom [of your robe and used as a bag]. For with the measure you deal out [with the measure you use when you confer benefits on others], it will be measured back to you. – Jesus (Luke 6:38) (AMP)
This is a no-fail giving principle! It shall be given unto to you! Jesus said it!
GIVE, for it will surely be given back to you!
Disclaimer: Knowing when to give, what to give, and what to give to, is of the essence. Allow God to direct you and you will be just fine.
