Contents may shift but the bag is still full

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. For what measure you measure, it will be measured in return to you. Luke 6:38

Anyone who has opened a new bag of chips knows that contents shifts so that while the content of the bag measured in ounces is considered full, the bag can look half empty. How we measure our resources and how we perceive that measurement determines whether we experience what we have, and what we think we have to give, as abundance or lack. And…that pressing and shaking going on in our lives might just be contents shifting to make room for more. What if the abundant life Christ has for us really is all that and a bag of chips – and the bag is bottomless?

 Lord, help me to measure by Your limitless abundance.
