Luke 6 Chapter 38th Verse

A wealthy man bought a field in a large urban city. He hired a company to clear the acreage. Then he sent in farmers and growers to condition the soil by bringing in richer soil, water and nutrients. Finally he hired a gardener to plant a variety of vegetables in the field.

The residents watched with curiosity. They saw the healthful crops sprouting from the ground. They waited for a fence to go up at any moment. Surely this man was going to protect his investment, but it did not happen.
He did not fence in his massive garden.

The vegetables soon began to grow in abundance.
Many of the people began to sneak into the field at night to take the vegetables. Still nothing happened. No fence went up. No caretaker was on site to run them away.

The people began to boldly come into the field during the day to get food for their meals. No one stopped them.
Because of the nutritious food many of the adults and children became healthier and grew stronger.

Why was the field planted and left open for all?

The field was planted as an act of giving.
The owner told the people that as long as they only took enough for their own meals, they were free to take whatever vegetables they desired.

God multiplies whatever it is that is given away and the giver ends up getting more than he gave in the first place.


Luke 6:38 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.

Psalm 41:1 Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble.

Traci, Mary and I made a vow to give most of our garden harvest away this year. From the time we made that vow, our garden flourished like never before. It turned out to be the best yielding garden we ever had. Thanks for sharing.
Thomas
