Give, and it shall be given unto you. This is what the Bible tells us in LUKE 6:38. God really want you to be a giver not only a receiver.

Legend has it that a man was lost in the desert, dying for water. He came upon a shack and saw a rusty old water pump. He stumbled over to it, grabbed the handle and began to pump up and down. But nothing came out. Then he noticed a nearby jug with these words: “My friend, you have to prime the pump with the water in this jug. P.S. Be sure to fill the jug again before you leave.” As he popped the cork, suddenly he was faced with a decision. If he drank the water he could live. But if he poured it into the old rusty pump, maybe it would yield from down deep in the well all the water he wanted later. He studied his options. What should he do, pour it into the pump and take a chance on fresh, cool water, or drink what was in the jug and ignore its message? Reluctantly he poured all the water into the pump. Then he grabbed the handle and began to pump…squeak, squeak, squeak. Nothing came out! Squeak, squeak, squeak. A little bit began to dribble out, then a small stream, and finally it gushed! To his relief fresh, cool water poured out of the old rusty pump. Eagerly, he filled the jug and drank from it. He filled it another time and once again drank its refreshing contents. Then he filled the jug for the next traveler. He filled it to the top, popped the cork back on, and added this little note: “Believe me, it really works.” Friend, don’t ignore the message Jesus left: “Give, and it shall be given unto you.” This is a simple gospel that can turn a man’s life around. God’s Word is ever true, only put it in practice,then you will will be amazed. May the good Lord grant us understanding of his word. Amen.

Yours in Christ; the one the master loves.
