“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.” (Luke 6: 38)
Give with generosity, with freedom, without fear. You have an unlimited supply of riches to share. You sparkle with a beauty more pleasing than a case full of jewels. Your presence, your life, your active being is resplendent and abundant. Give with joy what you have and who you are. Such giving blesses, with no loss to you, and a great gain for all.
When we give with love and of Love, it is returned to us with an immeasurable fullness. Those who receive give back to us—whether in the form of substance or the simple yet great gift of gratitude, a smile, a release to joy and wonder and hope. And yet this measure of good that comes back to us has never been outside of us to begin with. But by our use, fearlessly, of the qualities of good, the gifts that we have, we only become more aware of their origin, of God, of that which is infinite and loving and right.
There is never a call or justification for stinginess. There is never a reason to hold back on a heartfelt impulse to share, to give a gift that pleases, and by doing so, to make joy, comfort, light more powerful in the world. For that satisfied soul who receives from us, gives as well, causing the world to unite in one great purpose, with God as the source and circumference of it all. This is spiritual love uplifting the world beyond materialism and personal ownership, to the great fact that God is all, and that we, therefore, are perfectly blessed and thoroughly satisfied.
