What do you contribute to the relationship?
Luke 6:38 The Expanded Bible
Give, and ·you will receive [L- it will be given to you]. ·You will be given much [L …a good measure…]. ·Pressed down [Compacted], shaken together, and running over, it will spill into your lap [C- the image is of grain overflowing its container]. The ·way you give to [standard/measure you use with] others is the ·way God will give to [standard/measure God will use with] you.”
Are you giving superficial things: flowers, jewelry and such? Or are you giving of yourself?
How do you determine what you are going to give your spouse? Your children? Your friends? Do you give exactly what a person deserves? Or is your giving unconditional?
LUKE 6:38 The Voice
Don’t hold back—give freely, and you’ll have plenty poured back into your lap—a good measure, pressed down, shaken together, brimming over. You’ll receive in the same measure you give.
