Give and gifts will be given to you

September 13, 2018 6:00 am

“Give and gifts will be given to you; a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap. For the measure with which you measure will in return be measured out to you.” (LK 6: 38)

There are two different worlds seen from the perspective of the gift: when we are focused on giving or when we are focused on receiving. The givers are happy to share, to give something away and to make someone happy; the receivers are happy only when they receive and are always expecting something from someone. St. Paul reminds us: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ (ACTS 20: 35)

“If we love one another, God remains in us, and his love is brought to perfection in us.” (Gospel Acclamation)
