Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap; for the measure you give will be the measure you get back. (Luke 6:38
He said he would, but on the way he had to stop by the hospital and make a few calls. I went with him and while I was in the hospital I visited some elderly people. I read from the Bible and prayed with them. By the time the morning was over, I was higher than a kite. I haven't felt this good in years."
The psychotherapist quickly responded, "Now we know how to make you happy! Our problem is solved! Now we know how to keep you out of the doldrums!" Much to his surprise, the young woman answered, "You don't expect me to do this sort of thing every day, do you?"
She knew the solution to her problems. She knew how much satisfaction she received from ministering to others, but still she resisted. Is her story ours?
God of peace, help me to give so that I may receive peace. In Jesus' name, Amen.
