How can it be possible?
If you give something, you will lose that thing. This is a mathematical principle. The more you give, the more you lose. It is very clear. But, ‘Give and it shall be given’,â€”says Jesus. By “something” It doesn\’t necessarily mean a material gift. You may give them a compliment, bless them with a prayer, or wish them well.
Have you ever seen somebody giving you merely because you give? He takes away everything you give and goes away.
But, what the Christ says is that you will not merely be given back what you give, but overflowing, pressed and shaken will it be given back to you.
If you give one, you will get back hundreds, thousands, says Jesus.
This, again, is a non-mathematical calculation. How can you get hundreds and thousands, if you give only one?
‘Give and it shall be given’, is what the Christ says.
He adds one adjective to it which is stunning, astonishing, and awe-inspiring. It shall be given back to you, not merely in the measure that you have given, but overflowing and pressed.
In a measure, the contents are pressed so that it may contain more and more, and then when it is overflowing abundantly, in that abundant form will it be given back to you. So, do not be afraid that you will lose by giving.
We believe that by giving we lose. But, the Spirit says that by giving we gain. So, everywhere you find that the law of the Spirit is different from the law of matter. The law of the Christ is different from the law of the world.
If so, then I\’m assuming you\’re someone who receives much of the same in return, and you\’re living a life of true abundance.
If giving and receiving is such a fundamental part of life itself, then the same law must also apply to our interpersonal relationship. If we wish to receive, we must first give to others. The more we give, the more we will receive.
In order to reap the benefits of giving and receiving, you must enjoy the act of giving. If you give for the sake of receiving, that\’s no good. You must take pleasure in the act of giving itself.
Start giving right away, and get this powerful law working for you in your life. The more you give, the more you will receive.
The law of God is different from the law of man. This is wonderful!
