Give me a break

“Give, and it will be given to you” Luke 6:38 (NIV)

Ever say to yourself, “I could really use a break”. There are many times we feel like getting a little help, relief, encouragement, hope, love…

When I look at today’s verse I see a twist that goes counter to our natural thinking. If our focus becomes “what can I give and who can I give it to”, then God will meet our many physical, emotional and social needs.

But dwelling only on our own wants and desires, and constantly figuring out ways to satisfy ourselves will lead to extreme frustration and stress.

We can replace our natural thinking with supernatural thinking. “To get we need to give” is upside down thinking, but it is God’s thinking!


Heavenly Father, thank You for the promise to richly take care of me when I adjust my thinking to meeting the needs of others. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
