Contents may shift

Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back. Luke 6:38

 Anyone who has opened a new box of cereal knows that contents shifts in transit so that a full box looks half empty. Sometimes we experience some pressing and shaking to make room for more. If we are busy with the giving instead of looking at the box we can be sure that God is always pouring more in.

 Lord, help me to keep giving when the box looks half empty.
