Luke 6:38 tells us,

“Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”

It is not unusual to hear this verse used in connection with giving money to the Lord’s work. And while there is a principle concerning money embedded in this verse, Jesus was not talking about giving an offering when He made this statement. That was not the subject under discussion.

In order to understand what He was really talking about, you need to read verses 35-37,

“But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil. Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful. Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.”

Jesus wanted to impress on us this truth: If you give love and mercy, they come back to you in good measure, pressed down, shaken together.

He wanted us to understand that by the same measure you and I give these things, it will come back to us. But if you and I measure out judgment and condemnation, guess what gets measured back to us?

Make a commitment today to be a giver of love, not seeking anything in return. Become known as someone who reflects our God's love to a broken and needy world.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Excellent teaching! And you're right - I'd never thought about this verse in relation to judgment and/or condemnation. Thanks.
