Your measure…

March 2, 2015 7:00 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)

How often our measure is based on the gifts we give. The more we give, the more we expect to receive. Our Lord changed this perspective: first is the gift “given to you: a good measure, packed together, shaken down and overflowing.” Only when we are packed can we share; when we are empty, we are only focused on where and how to receive. His love and generosity is always first; we can follow His example and can learn from Him.

“Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life; you have the words of everlasting life.” (Gospel Acclamation)
