Luke 6:38 38 Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” (NIV)

 Most of us interpret this verse as dealing with money.  While it does apply to money, it also applies to everything else.  When we give judgement of others, we get judgement back.  When we give anger to others, we get anger back.  When we give a kind word to others, we get a kind word back.  We have everything in us we need through the fruits of the Holy Spirit.  They grow in us as we give them to others.  As we give them and they grow, we receive even more of them.  Let us give out what we want for ourselves.
